TRIP REPORT: TIGERS OF PONGOLA – 19 to 25 August
We had a great family-orientated group on the water from 19 to 25 August. The group of 8 anglers were made up of a father and future son-in-law; as well as three farther-and-son pairs.
Of the group only one had previous caught a tigerfish in South Africa, while one had never cast a fly rod before. (He learned very quickly and managed 23 fish for the week, congrats Cameron Verster!).
The weather was rather unstable, with some wind on a few of the days and the barometric pressure all over the show. The group still managed 187 fish between them.
Most fish: Mike Stopforth (34 fish)
Biggest Fish: Zak Steyn (8 pounder)
