Tiger Fishing at Ngwenya Lodge on the Mighty Zambezi River

A new destination totally committed to catching the ferocious tiger fish arguably recognised as the hardest fighting fresh water fish in the world.

It starts with a ferocious take your rod nearly ripped out of your hands that split second as time stands still and your reel starts to scream as line is ripped of at bonefish speed.

If this is the adrenalin rush you need then Ngwenya Lodge is the place to be

A large thatched Lapa is the dining room area with a fully stocked bar, tastefully furnished in Rhodesian teak All meals are served in the lapa with a spectacular view over the Zambesi River.

Fishing Equipment Required
I will insert 3 to 4 pictures Allan if you can email them to me I will convert?

Fly Rod a fast sink &floating lines, are recommended but take a range of lines

8.9 weight rods and again throw a 5/6 weight in with the main weapon.

Quality fly reel don’t have anything less than a disc style drag for smooth line evacuation at speed? As it is possible you will hit a vundhu a 60lb (Barbel like Fish)

And if you have caught a Barbel you will know what we mean?

Tippets and leaders of over 6-20pounds are recommended but stick to 12lb average

Bring spare spools of quality monofilament.

If tying your own flies bring saltwater hooks in sizes 1/0.2/0. & 3/0 Deceiver patterns with plenty of flash in red blue white chartreuse and plenty of black combination of al of these will do the trick. Silver Mylar tubing is ideal to imitate a Kapenta the staple diet of the Tiger fish. Weighted and non-weighted flies for differing conditions.

Hook sharpener is a must?
Nylon coated & multi-strand wire trace is no good? You must use 28lb single strand wire trace

Conventional Fishing Equipment
Bass Rods, and normal spinning rods are useful with fixed spool style reels or small baitcaster, and multipliers with 15lb –20lb line will do the job when spinning or trolling. Another technique that we find effective is called “Dober Dober”in which case you would need an 8-9weight fly fishing rod fitted with an open cast reel or bait caster loaded with 10lb line.

Hooks as above

Small black mustard swivels the smaller the better. Must be black anything else will attract tigers and will result in you being snapped off

Mepps spinners in 3,4,&5 for Tigerfish. The sliver blade and the black blade with red or silver reflectors constantly produce fish bring a minimum of 12-15 mepps per person

Nylon as per above and single strand wire 28 pound please.
