    its a large animal and thick neck so i think female lechwie, but sitatunga is a possiblity, but i'd go lechwie :)

    and location? ocovango delta or caprivi? I'd guess delta with the wide open space and large body of water.

    great shot though, wonder what the length of that stride is?

    man ben you know how to twist a knife! that sounds like a fantaitic trip......please tell me you are planning on having a go at tarpon at flamingo bay, and if you feel like a quiet afternoon taking on a fish that will leave you breathless, try find the milk fish i hear they have some fantastic milkies around too.


    how long you slumming it in the swamps?

    no its not photoshopped, just very shallow water and a buck going like a bat. you can see the mud kicked up behind the back feet, its just shallow and fast so looks like it is skipped across. Lechwie and Sitatunga are brilliant at doing it

    YES 10 weight fly rod is packed ,but looking at the weather it looks as if Angola is flooded this is going to make driving there very interesting.
    I hear that there is lots of leeries around so going to have lots of fun.

    take a small bass rod and some live bait for those leeries.

    10 weight for an angolan tarpon. Good luck with that!! do you ahve a decent salt water reel, with lots of backing? they can seaze a reel on the first run:)

    sounds like an awesum trip. skip the diving man was born to fish:)
