The Beast Tamer™ Yellowfish flies was established in 2015 and inspired by the creations and ideas of pro Yellowfish fly-fishing guide and fly-tyer Gerrit Viljoen aka The Beast Tamer.
What sets my Largemouth Yellowfish flies apart is time on the water! I believe that a fly is developed and perfected on the water and NOT in the vise. I see so many “new” creations that has never touched water and to me THAT IS A BIG NO NO!
Durability, simplicity and the use of top quality materials are key factors to the construction of all my patterns! My hooks of choice are Gamakatsu and Mustad, all top end hook brands chosen for specific applications.
Areas that my Largie fly-packs travel regularly are the Vaal river, Orange river and dams like Sterkfontein and Vanderkloof. Some of my Largie flies even went as far as Mongolia!
Don’t compromise on quality, spend a little extra and buy the best! Beware of cheap imitations!!!
My flies are ONLY available for purchase via the www.yellowfish.co.za / www.thebeasttamer.co.za websites.
