Honeymoon on the Zambezi

I received photos recently from Jo Stephenson (one of the BUG-BOND Pro-Tying Team). She recently visited Africa whilst on honeymoon with her husband Jonny (armed with BUG-BOND flies and fishing gear). Jo has allowed me to reproduce her photos here and she's provided a short commentary. Thanks Jo...


"We were staying in a beautiful lodge, called Waterberry Lodge which is owned by a lady we know, its on the Upper Zambezi , located about 30 - 40min drive outside of Livingstone. We fished for Nembwe and Tiger, these are the two main species that could be fly fished for, but we only managed to catch Tiger on the fly. They both also go well for spinners, and the locals use a lot of bait for both species. We found that early morning and evening were the best times for catching although it is possible to catch in deeper water in the middle of the day. On the fly, the tiger seemed interested in flies coloured white, white & blue, black, orange & black, black & red but black being the most 'hit' colour."



Jonny looks a happy chap, whilst the tiger looks a little peeved!

That is one lucky man! A fish few of us will ever be able to experience but will dream endlessly about.
