OK, another wee tricky one:

Who am I :?

I have had articles published in many fishing magazines but am perhaps best known for the various books I've written or co-written on game angling.
My first book was published in 1960 and my first magazine article was in 1955.
I've bumped into Hamish a few times (when he was but a lad) on the west coast on a river I fished a lot - which might be a very solid clue :wink

So.... who am I :?

Not quite a joker but can anyone explain what the art of 'Gyotaku' is?

Is it something like Japanese brass rubbing with fish ?

OK I am going to go with a Hamish type question..see how you get on with this one.

I am a long, thin, perch-like commercial food fish & I belong to the Gempylidae family.
I am found in the seas of the Southern Hemisphere.

In Australasia as I am known as a barracouta although I am not related to the barracuda.

I can grow up to 79" long and weigh as much as 13 lb.

In South Africa what is my name & which language does it come from?
