Partner & Artist - Johann Du Preez

I am a passionate fly fisherman and artist. I have dedicated my life to the pursuit of fish in some of the most remote corners of the world. This pursuit has taken me all across Africa and parts of North and South America and it has taught me the value of conservation, through education. I use my artwork as means to express my love for the outdoors and to share my passion with the world.
