Zambezified

Kipling’s writing immortalized the great grey-green greasy Limpopo – it would be fascinating to read his words had he experienced the majesty of the Zambezi River on his travels. What a spellbinding waterway it is.   Fly Fishing on the mighty Zambezi River with River God Adventures   The longest East flowing river on the continent of Africa surely traverses some of its most precious and game rich terrain.

White Marlin Fiesta

Inside Angling was invited by Rico Sakko to fish in Morocco for white marlin in August 2017. Rico is an old friend who we have fished with in Angola many times, he had fished Morocco last year for white marlin and had an amazing experience.

This would then potentially make it possible, for example, to catch a Tiger fish in four countries in one afternoon without getting off the boat. Anyone keen to give that a go? Of course wherever boundaries occur in rivers there

Illustrious Invermooi

If you’re looking for the quintessential KZN Midlands experience with rolling mist shrouded hills, roaring log fires and pristine Trout lakes and rivers, you’re in luck.
