A few years ago I joined a friend for a trip to the boat dealer as he prepared to order 20 feet of fiberglass priced over $60,000. He had a very detailed list of options that he wanted, and I sat semi-quietly as he led the dealer through his preferred build.
So we’re headed to Africa to (hopefully) land a few toothy tigerfish and the tackle prep situation is proving difficult. Not only are we limited to 33 pounds of gear and clothing per person for the entire three weeks, but the information on which tackle to bring is quite limited. Making it even more challenging, most if not all of the fisheries we’re visiting limit you to single barbless hooks on your lures.
