South African Fishing Flies

R 300
R 240Jy spaar R 60
Fly-fishing is a multifaceted sport that will absorb you in its reality, taking you to places of exceptional beauty, to explore and to revel in the solitude. It is so often spoken of as an art form while fly-tying, inextricably linked to fly-fishing, is in its own right a form of artistry.

South African Fishing Flies is a celebration of this artistry - the innovation, the talents of the originators and their vision of imagination, masters of the craft - and of all the fly-tyers of South Africa. It is not an exhaustive reference to all South African flies, but is rather an anthology of those that by virtue of their innovation in design, materials used and tying techniques have helped shape and, in some cases, change the thinking on fly-tying in this country. It is also a visual celebration of these flies, the waters we fish, an introduction to some of the individuals in our fly-fishing community, and creators of South African flies.

Glory Game - The Joost van der Westhuizen story

R 180
R 144Jy spaar R 36
In 2011 the world was shocked when the news broke that Joost van der Westhuizen, known for years as the golden boy of South African rugby and a former Springbok captain, had been diagnosed with motor neuron disease (MND). This rare condition attacks the central nervous system, causing progressive disability. There is no known cure.

All who have seen Joost in action will know that he is not one to give up without a fight. His game-changing prowess as a brilliant scrum half is now focused on a battle for survival and, more importantly, on making a difference to the lives of others with the disease.

In a race against time, Joost has a dream to fulfil. He says: 'In the beginning you go through all the emotions and you ask, 'Why me?' It's quite simple. 'Why not me?' If I have to go through this to help future generations, why not me?' His acceptance of his symptoms is equally pragmatic: 'One day you can't move your arm, another day you don't have speech. Every day you are reborn and you take the day as it comes.'

Glory Game - The Joost van der Westhuizen Story is a compelling narrative of redemption set against the backdrop of an illustrious career in rugby. It is the story of a modern-day warrior forced to face his own human frailty. Joost shows us that beyond ambition, success and fame lies the true wealth of family and friends, and that within a ravaged body the spirit can remain invincible.

This book is based on the scenes and the behind-the-scenes of the Glory Game documentary.

Springbok Coaches

R 230
R 184Jy spaar R 46
Was coach Heyneke Meyer the reason why the Springboks failed at the 2015 Rugby World Cup? And what does the future have in store for the incumbent coach, Allister Coetzee? Find these answers, and many others, in The Springbok Coaches.

In this new, updated edition of The Poisoned Chalice, rugby writer Gavin Rich takes us past the disappointment of the 2015 Rugby World Cup right up to the appointment of Allister Coetzee in April 2016, and dissects not only the successes and failures of these two Springbok coaches, but of all the post-isolation coaches who preceded them.

If all of them agree on one thing, it is that the job goes hand in hand with tremendous pressure and that, at some point, they all buckled under the strain. This book reveals why André Markgraaff and Rudolf Straeuli came up with some of their weird and controversial decisions, why Nick Mallett dropped Gary Teichmann and how he regrets it now, why Harry Viljoen really quit, and why the pressures on Heyneke Meyer made it so much more difficult for the Springboks to win the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

This book chronicles all the post-isolation coaches' experiences via interviews, articles and stats. From the triumphs to the controversies, the boardroom to the rugby field, this book will reveal exactly what it takes to be the Bok coach, and why each and every one of them had, at some time or another in the toughest job in South African sport, lost it. A riveting, often revelatory and definitely controversial read!

Stories from the Touchline

R 230
R 184Jy spaar R 46
A collection of humorous, touching and uplifting stories about life, rugby and everything else by one of South Africa's true rugby legends...

Theuns Stofberg's illustrious rugby career spanned from 1976 to 1985, and he is commonly considered one of the all-time Springbok greats. As the 36th captain of the Springboks, one of only 56 players to be given this honour, he was tough and uncompromising on the field but a true gentleman and great raconteur off it, which he proves with the anecdotes collected in this book.

In Stories from the Touchline, he takes the reader behind the scenes, from his childhood days as a schoolboy rugby player to the 1981 flour-bomb tour of New Zealand and winning the Currie Cup for three different provinces - a feat unmatched to this day. He also writes about what it was like playing with legends such as Morné du Plessis, Gerrie Germishuys, Schalk Burger Sr and Gysie Pienaar, marvels at the fans' odd and often colourful behaviour, and affords readers a fascinating glimpse into the amateur days of rugby in South Africa. He also shares his personal struggles with a speech impediment and ill health, and coping with family tragedy, in his own inimitable way. By turns deeply personal, amusing and nostalgic, this book will be treasured by each and every South African rugby fan.

Stories van die kantlyn

R 230
'n Versameling stories oor rugby, die lewe en allerhande ander dinge wat jou sal laat lag, ontroer en opkikker, deur een van Suid-Afrika se ware rugbylegendes...

Theuns Stofberg se glorieryke rugbyloopbaan het van 1976 tot 1985 geduur, en hy word in die algemeen beskou as een van die grootste Springbokke ooit. As die 36ste Springbokkaptein - een van slegs 56 spelers wat dìe eer kon hê - was hy taai en kompromisloos op die veld, maar langs die kantlyn was hy 'n ware heer en uitstekende storieverteller - soos bewys word deur die anekdotes wat byeengebring is in hierdie boek.

In Stories van die kantlyn neem hy lesers tot agter die skerms, na sy kinderdae as skoolseun-rugbyspeler, tot die berugte meelbom-toer in Nieu-Seeland in 1981, en ook sy Curriebeker-oorwinnings vir drie provinsies - tot vandag toe 'n ongeewenaarde prestasie. Hy skryf ook oor hoe dit was om saam met legendes soos Morne du Plessis, Gerrie Germishuys, Schalk Burger snr. en Gysie Pienaar te speel, hy roep bewonderaars se vreemde en dikwels fleurige gedrag in herinnering en gee lesers 'n fassinerende blik op die amateurdae van rugby in Suid-Afrika.

Hy vertel in sy unieke, onnabootsbare styl van sy persoonlike stryd met 'n spraakgebrek en gesondheidsprobleme, en hoe hy 'n tragedie in die familie hanteer het. Elke Suid-Afrikaanse rugbyliefhebber sal hierdie boek, wat soms diep persoonlik, soms amusant en partymaal nostalgies is, koester en geniet.
