Fishing Equipment Required
I will insert 3 to 4 pictures Allan if you can email
them to me I will convert?
Rod a fast sink &floating lines, are recommended but
take a range of lines
weight rods and again throw a 5/6 weight in with the
fly reel don’t have anything less than a disc style
drag for smooth line evacuation at speed? As it is
possible you will hit a vundhu a 60lb (Barbel like
you have caught a Barbel you will know what we mean?
Tippets and leaders of over 6-20pounds are
recommended but stick to 12lb average
spare spools of quality monofilament.
tying your own flies bring saltwater hooks in sizes
1/0.2/0. & 3/0 Deceiver patterns with plenty of
flash in red blue white chartreuse and plenty of
black combination of al of these will do the trick.
Silver Mylar tubing is ideal to imitate a Kapenta
the staple diet of the Tiger fish. Weighted and
non-weighted flies for differing conditions.
Hook sharpener is a must?
Nylon coated & multi-strand wire trace is no good?
You must use 28lb single strand wire trace
Bass Rods, and normal spinning rods are useful with
fixed spool style reels or small baitcaster, and
multipliers with 15lb –20lb line will do the job
when spinning or trolling. Another technique that we
find effective is called “Dober Dober”in which case
you would need an 8-9weight fly fishing rod fitted
with an open cast reel or bait caster loaded with
black mustard swivels the smaller the better. Must
be black anything else will attract tigers and will
result in you being snapped off
spinners in 3,4,&5 for Tigerfish. The sliver blade
and the black blade with red or silver reflectors
constantly produce fish bring a minimum of 12-15
mepps per person
as per above and single strand wire 28 pound please.
