    Default Tofo Mozambique

    I'm heading off to Tofo in January. I have read through some of the older threads pertaining to Mozambique but would like to get some info specifically on Tofo. I will have the use of a boat so a 12wt would not be a bad idea (budget allowing of course...) If you guys can give me any info regarding species to target, specific spots, tackle requirements, specific flies or just previous experience please speak up. Also I need a new reel for my 9wt and I'm not really considering anything other than a Shilton SL6. If you know of a place where I can get one at a decent price please let me know.

    Let me, less cruel, cast feather'd hook, With pliant rod athwart the pebbled brook,
    Silent along the mazy margin stray, And with fur-wrought fly delude the prey

    I think John at Upstream was selling a second hand one... or was it a 7? Give him a shout.

    The onshore fishing at Tofo (and the inhambane area generally) is pretty shot due to locals raping the rocks of all life. Opposite a place called Blue Roofs in Tofinho is a tiny bay, fishing off the southern point at low tide can be amusing (bonefish, pompano, kingies, trigger fish). The point at Barra has yielded some fun, but expect to work hard for small kingies and 3 spot pompano.

    Offshore there is also pretty average. We normally make the trip to Guinjata/Paindane and fish to the ocean side of the paindane reef. GT's on poppers. But getting close enough to use a fly could be dangerous.

    Thanks for the info Circus and Maddy! Much appreciated. I will tie up the usual array of clousers etc. Was thinking of taking a spinning outfit aswell, eventually decided against it. I think in the end we will probably focus more on offshore, seeing that the shoreline has been raped and pillaged. Maybe look for Queenies etc behind the breakline or target reefs or pinnacles for GT's. Seems like I will get my 12wt so offshore should be fine, unless I hook into a Marlin or a tug boat. I will give John a call tomorrow. I'll give feedback after the trip so that if guys decide to go in the future they'll have an idea what they're up for.
