Fishing in the mighty Zambezi is best known because of the great freshwater game fish – The Tigerfish, and as a result the Zambezi River has become the number one destination for avid fresh water anglers. Powerful, swift predators Tigerfish are a thrill to catch and require a great deal of fishing skill with a good river specimen weighing over 15 lbs.
Bream, or Tilapia, also live in large numbers in the river and although they don’t fight quite as aggressively as the Tiger, a good 5 lb fish will quickly snap light tackle given half the chance. Spinners and lures are the most common method of catching these fish although using light tackle, a fly and a fly-rod is becoming very popular and brings an extra dimension to a very exciting sport.
Tea and coffee, soft drinks, beer and fishing tackle are provided on this must-do tour for the keen angler.
