David Anderson takes equal delight in hooking trout and taking photographs – passions that are evident in Fly Fishing – where dramatic shots deliver you right to the action. Visits to favourite back-waters and country streams in both Australia and New Zealand appear in stories and pictures taken on trips with fellow fly fishers.
With characteristic wit and charm, Anderson makes it all seem easy and he’s happy to share the benefit of his skill and expertise handling the ‘twig’, the rod he employs for small-stream fishing. Along with plenty of tackle tips and rod reviews, he presents a witty, informative and well-illustrated volume, certain to appeal to armchair enthusiasts and ardent anglers on both sides of the Tasman.

David Anderson is a photographer by trade, a professional for over 25 years, he has mostly focused on people. His website details his most recent work. Anderson’s passion for small stream trout fishing is revealed through his blog and website at The term twigwater derives from his use of a shortish lightweight rod (twig) with light tackle as being the most appropriate when fishing small streams. The blog features stories and photo essays with fly fishing gear reviews and places to fish – many of which have appeared in Flylife and will be illustrated in our book.
