CAPITAINE – NILE PERCH – ON FOOT – ON FLY – CAMEROON 2019 SEASON: BLOG 2

Week 2 of the 2019 Pioneer Nile Perch season saw good friend, Charlotte  from Aardvark McLeod and Gordon make the journey over to Cameroon from the UK. They were joined by  Chris and Martin, from South Africa, both of whom have had a life long obsession with all things African fishery related, and who were eager to test their fly fishing skills against the nile perch, tigerfish, and various other species on offer in the unique area. A highlight for the week, was Charlotte landing three nile perch over 1m, some good tiger fishing to sighted fish, and a monster fish that Martin hooked that managed to cut through the leader at the last moment.  Here follows a short video blog from Stu and Greg on location, as well as some highlight pictures from the week.
