Off the Grid Studio & Beattie Productions
We’ve assembled a network of talented people from around the world to take the creative process from concept to fruition. Everyone has a story to tell. What’s yours?
OTG founder, RA Beattie, created Beattie Outdoor Productions in 2005 and since then, has been creating and delivering high-end digital media to outdoor audiences for almost a decade. Beattie’s desire and passion to take digital media creation and delivery to a higher, and more environmentally responsible and sustainable level, prompted the creation of OTG Studios.

What is this addiction called fly-fishing all about?
It is about freedom, excitement and sheer perfection… a quiet passion that drives us to explore all the different aspects of this great sport!
And it is this reason that led to the formation of the Brotherhood… it’s a movement, community and portal where we share our experiences, stories, and advice.
The brainchild of Founder, Jako Lucas, in collaboration with Vagabond Fly Mag and Fly Religion Clothing Company…hoping that this community will serve as a platform for everyone out there who have a tangible passion to push the boundaries, to promote new locations and to publish their work aimed specifically at the younger generation who are only just embarking on this adventure.
The BrotherHood was purely created out of love for the sport with no intention of gaining any monetary value from this forum.
Some folks we work with:
Alphonse Island Fishing – Chanos-Chanost
An incredible 292 miles southeast o Mahe, lies the St St François Lagoon and adjacent Alphonse Island, part of the Amirantes group of Islands.
Alphonse, one of the famed saltwater destinations of the Indian Ocean, is by most accounts, home to the most prolific Bone fishery in the world.
In addition to the abundant bonefish (ranging in size from 3 – 8 lbs) there are three species of Triggerfish, five species of Trevally and a plethora of other flats and offshore species. Perhaps the most challenging fish to catch is the fabled Milkfish; a turbo charged algae eater growing to 40lbs.
It is therefore, no surprise that the Alphonse Guide Team, have not only caught these amazing and very unknown fish… they pioneered the techniques which have allowed these vegetarian and notoriously difficult fish to be caught.
Chanos Chanos coming soon….
Lesotho – Makhangoa Community Camp
Follow the Tourette’s fishing crew as they pioneer a new fishery in Africa; help the community and fish for Yellowfish and Trout in the high mountain streams of Lesotho.
The Makhangoa Community Camp is the first of its kind fly fishing ecotourism project in the area. The Makhangoa Camp and fishery on the Bokong River is managed and run by Tourette Fishing and the Makhangoa Tourism Council.
The aim of the partnership is to provide sustainable and beneficial tourism to the area, while conserving the natural resources which attract anglers to this beautiful valley.
Proceeds of all visitors’ bookings (through a daily community levy) are allocated to community benefac- tion projects, with the aim to uplift and enable the local community live happier and healthier lives.Apart from the daily community levies generated from each visitors stay, the camp trains and employs local staff in all aspects of camp life and management.
From camp managers, and cultural guides, to cleaning ladies and maintenance staff.
In addition to the amazing fly fishing that draws anglers from across the globe to the Makhangoa Community Camp, the local tourism council have set up a range of local community projects which offer guests a unique insight in local Lesotho life and culture. These include pony treks, village tours, mountain hikes, shabeen (local tavern) visits and local arts and crafts.
If you take any activity and push it to the wildest edge, you create magic. In 2011 we made it our goal to explore the countries waterways looking for a world class yellowfish destination that we knew would be there.
In 2012, after numerous exploratory trips, hours spent on Google Earth, some intense white knuckle 4x4 trips and epic mountain treks, this goal was achieved!Fly fishing for yel- lowfish in crystal clear Lesotho Rivers is definitely one such activity. Your need to fish wild and remote waters, to create your own magic, may well be what drives you.
At Tourette Fishing we understand this urge is far more than fleeting. It is an intrinsic need that motivates all you do. You don’t just want to fish, you NEED to fish. With your limited time, we understand you want to fish the best waters at the optimum time of year with the best guides in the industry.
Rest assured, for your enjoyment we have scouted what we believe are some of the finest dry fly and sight fishing yellowfish rivers in Southern Africa.
So, when next you get the urge to fish seriously, let us help. We’ll put you on wildest edge of African fly-fishing, where you can create your own magic.
The Makhangoa Community Camp coming soon….
