Fly Fishing in Tanzania – The Fishing Day
If you don’t want to spend some hours on the water, then this trip may not be for you. You will generally get started at about 6:00 AM with a light breakfast before leaving in the boats at about 6:45 AM. You will have a snack before lunch. There is a good break for eating and relaxing at lunch, generally under a massive tree. You will return to camp just before dark each evening. The lounge area at the main camp is great for tying flies and having that well deserved beer.
Our trips are generally 6 full days of fishing with addition of a long ½ day on the day you arrive.
All fishing is done by boat, and two anglers can cast simultaneously. You will work structure, drops, and riffles as the boat is slowly poled down river. An outboard helps in out-running the hippos.
Sixteen foot ‘Go Devil’ aluminum boats are used. These boats have been chosen for their application and are ideal for fishing the Mnyera and Ruhudji Rivers. All boats are fitted with 25 – 40hp motors. Each boat caters for two anglers and their professional guide, as well as a coxswain. Boats have ample storage areas and seating for three people. All boats are fitted with line stripping bins and equipped with two way radios and first aid equipment.
