Robert Daly’s Tanzania Report. Nov 1

Was able to fish for monster tigerfish on the Mnyera River and Ruhudji Rivers in Tanzania last week. Had a group of 4 which included friends, Cole Lundquist, Steve Ryan, Dane Lundquist and myself. Steve Ryan had fished these rivers last year while this was the first tigerfish adventure for the rest of the group.

The lodge on River consists of private, spacious safari type tents with private hot shower and toilet.
You drift down the river fishing different sections of the river each day. The biggest tigerfish on the trip were all caught on the River. Cole landed monsters of 22.5lbs and 21lbs. Steve landed trophy tigers of 20lbs and 19lbs. I landed a trophy at 18lbs. All of us caught numbers other trophies in the teens. A trophy tigerfish is normally any over 10lbs.

Dane opted to hunt for a few days and bagged a trophy cape buffalo.

Lots of wildlife was observed by all during the trip especially on the ride from one river to the other and back. You go by jeep driving through the jungle. Lots of elephant, eland, warthog, cape buffalo and others were seen. Numerous hippos, baboons, and monster crocs were observed each day on the river.

I highly recommend this fishing experience. For more information contact email Steve at zato1@earthlink.net
