HUNTING TROUT - SECOND EDITION!
The new cover of Hunting Trout
The second edition of Hunting Trout has arrived in its new livery with a changed cover.

From the first printing of the first edition over 4000 copies were sold. It was out of print for more than two years, but I kept getting calls for the book. Second hand copies started to sell for staggering prices, which prompted me to reprint 500 copies.
Dirk Le Roux's copy of Hunting Trout
Since it was released many people have bought a second copy for one or other good reason. But Dirk Le Roux’s reason for getting another was the most compelling. His Jack Russell got hold of his first book!
Reviews and accolades
Hunting Trout has had many favourable reviews and accolades, not the least of which was the inclusion of a section of the book, ‘The Lakes at Inhluzane ‘, in ‘The Best Fishing Stories Ever Told’ published by Skyhorse Publications, New York.
Tony Kietzman, well known fly fishing guide living in Rhodes in the Eastern Cape Highlands has this to say about Hunting Trout:
‘I rate this as one of the five best fly fishing books ever written. I initially read the work and thought to myself... "I know all these people and places, so what?" Then I re-read the book and noticed all the instruction very cleverly woven into the narrative. This alone makes the book a masterpiece; everything you ever wanted or needed to know about catching trout is in here. And delivered in Tom's usual easy, conversational style, it is a very entertaining and instructional read. Every outdoorsman's bookcase or bedside table needs a copy!’
