    Default Well then....

    ...I guess i am about ready for my Tiger trip!

    Check the box out:


    It's Mostly filled with Clousers in a range of colour combos, but there are some other odds and sods, including some Whistlers, Surf Candys and Maxi's Dog's Breakfast, plus one or two Surface flies to try an get a Tiger to hit me on the surface!

    Two more sleeps, then we are driving to Windhoek where we will stay on Friday night. On Saturday we will watch the Boks take revenge on the Kiwis before heading up to Rundu and then finally the camp on the banks of the Kavango where we'll stay for the next 7 nights and fish the Kavango and Quito for six days! Then it's the dreaded 2 day drive back home!

    I'll take a bunch of pics to show you guys when I return.

    Just to add - this is all providing that we can find a route that hasn't been washed away, as the N7 near citrusdal is apparently not there any more.

    Hi Grant.....well you sure have waited a long time for this trip hey! I remember you talking about it last year this time already. It sure is nice to see a plan starting to come together! I can see you are very well prepared too...awesome flies!

    Just one question, I notice no wire traces on your flies, as a matter of interest, what is your plan with regards to this?

    Regards

    Hi Chris

    Being a trouty snob, dumb question here. Does one usually add the wire-trace beforehand (as in on each fly) or while one fishes (ties on a new fly)??

    usually beter to have at least half the flies already rigged with the trace. just makes it easier time wise to attach new flies when the tigers are hitting them .
