The guide dresses your trace up with a fish you would have been glad to have caught back home and calls it “bait”, you ask him what size tigerfish he’s expecting to eat that, and he replies with a dead pan face “Don’t worry we’ll try for the larger ones this afternoon.” Don’t be caught wondering whether you’ve brought the right gear.

Although after visiting this site you will be more informed about the ways and the means of the tigerfish and be better prepared to catch them, nothing can replace the value of using a professional fishing guide, fishing without one could mean the difference between a fabulous fish filled fishing trip or a frustrating fishless one. There are not many lodges and fishing camps on the Upper Zambezi, but the Nguni Houseboat is one that has a dedicated team of professional fishing guides and provides luxury accommodation to all discerning fisherman.
