What an interesting thread! Want to hear more about.....

@ryan: Have you made some pictures? Do you need a boat (I think so) and where can you charter one?

@Gerhard: It seems that you are a word-traveller, please share your experience about barbel-fishing on the other parts of the world with us.

 

Best wishes,
Uwe

We got back from the run about thre weeks ago.

Was amazing, you jsut dont want to hook any of the barbel....the river flows at 8km/h and off a boat and light tackle is difficult to land. Especially when others around you are landing tigers which avergae 3kgs.

Was an AMAZING experience. Only got two Nemwe but you go there jsut for the tigers...its the right place and time witht eh biggest been 4;5kgs and avergare of 25 tigers over 4 days fishing which is 6 tigers a day!
