Good day everyone

Just came back from a trip to the Panhandle in Botswana. Being a first for me I didn’t really know what to expect, and wasn’t sure if end of september would be the best time to book. Luckily two weeks ago the news came the the barbel run has started, and the dirty water was producing some good tigers.

I will post it as it happened day by day.

Day 1

We arrived at Nxamaseri lodge around 12 and had lunch. We would meet our guide at three for out first afternoon session. Set up our gear and at three off we went. It wasn’t long before we found traces of barbel starting to feed and we mainly used drifting up and down the river casting towards the reeds where the tigers were waiting for the bulldog baitfish to come into the main channel. I caught my biggest fish on the first afternoon of 3.4kg on a bulldog Afrijig
