The 2020 home-grown tigerfish season on Lake Jozini is in full swing.

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)

Here are a few some select scenes from this trip. Stay tuned to our social media channels for more on this trip and updates as the season progresses.
