Tanzania Tigerfish 2017: Week 6

Stepping off the plane, into the heart of Tanzania wilderness for week 6 of the 2017 Tanzania Tigerfish season we welcomed an eclectic mix of fly fisherman and women. Alexey and Sofia from Russia, booked through Farlows Russia and  Arni plus one, from Lax-A Angling as guests of concession owners KNS made up one group of 4 rods.

While double week guest Brian (Pescador Solitario guest), was joined by regular guest Mark P, as well as first time visitors Hugh, and Mark W (booked through Yellow Dog) joined forces to make the 2nd foursome.

One thing to remember when fishing pristine locations across the planet, is to take time to appreciate the beauty of the natural surroundings. It is all to easy to be blinded by ‘fish catching blinkers’ and miss out on the wonders of the natural environment you are immersed in. The pristine nature of the areas, is the reason the fish are where they are, and the fishery as healthy as it is. So always remember to take time each day, each session and each hour, to appreciate just where you, and the privilege you have afforded yourself to experience fly fishing in such places. BUT, don’t loose concentration and miss your shot at a trophy fish 😉

Some of the beautiful scenery anglers experience when fishing Tanzania, and beautiful release clips make up this weeks video blog. There is also a selection of some of the weeks best tigerfish to keep the fish porn levels up. Enjoy.

It is not all about the tigerfish. Sight fishing to these beautiful Tanzania yellowfish on shallow sand banks is an amazing experience in its own right.

The golden hour. Time when the bush starts to cool down, animals become more active, and tigerfish often feed with a little more intensity
