Fly fishing with my dad in Swaziland this weekend...

Alcohol is essentially nature’s Leatt Brace – with it, you might not be able to move worth sh*t, but you can take a slam or two and be no worse for the wear.

Nope, I tried with a trace but found that it casts like crap, so used 8kg mono instead.
got bitten off a couple times, but found that if you make sure that your line hasn't been nicked after every take there weren't any problems. These tigers were only in the 1-2kg range, for anything bigger a trace is probably necessary.

Big Bend - the van Eck dam

Nice little spot, set in a nature reserve, has crocs though, & a Hippo that cased me away from my favorite spot a couple of times.
I was fishing from a sit on top Kayak, & had a very productive weekend, evven though most of the locals have packed it in saying that the tiger season is over as of last month...
My dad has been fishing there for many years, & rcons that he gets about twice as many takes when fishing from a kayak compared to a motor boat...
