Whether you are fighting these beasts in the Zambezi or Pongola dam, you need a flyline that sinks fast and is strong enough to tame these beasts, especially when they head for structure. Your fly line must be strong enough to handle the pressure without breaking.
Goliath tigerfish in central africa are even stronger, but the Rio outbound flyline can deliver the strength needed to handle these large, tough fighting fish.
If you would like to book a trip to fish for these toothy monsters, contact African Waters, previous known as Tourettes, and "Fight it in Africa" at one of their Tanzanian camps
