One of my biggest wishes but money is the problem.
It definitely ain't a cheap trip, even with us only living 340km from Shakawe. There is however cheaper ways to do the trip. Finding the barbel run isn’t very difficult, and drifting down river just casting at structure and holes can be rewarding. Majority of the larger fish weren’t caught where the barbel were feeding, we threw anchor and fished a lot of the junctions that meets up with the main channel.
