Fly Fishing for Zambezi River Tigerfish

Denver Bryan fishes out of the Ichingo River Lodge (www.ichingo.com) near the confluence of the Ochongo and Zambezi in Namibia. “One has only to look into the mouth of a tigerfish to understand its name. The species is abundant and readily caught throughout most of the Zambezi River drainage system in southern Africa. And while any tiger is fun to catch, especially on a fly rod, double-digit fish up to 20 pounds are not that uncommon while record-book tigers exceed 30 pounds.” In the Billings (Montana) Gazette.
