    Those are some monsters compared to that litte bitty thing I seen in a picture at Hunterhill that Bruce caught. Those are enough to keep me from wading in the water and here I was worried about Crocs.
    Enjoy life now -- it has an expiration date.

    It's a pleasure showing you the pictures. We do most of our fishing on the Ruaha. The first photo is almost 10kg but we do go over that from time to time.
    It's an instant adrenalin rush and once one of these big ones take the fly you better hold on.
    Wes he is still swimming without any hooks attached to him.
    I will post more photos soon.... The fish, the camp etc...

    Depends on the 'sub species' and their food source! The Goliath Tiger are the biggest 40lbs+ as far as I know!

    Question is: what sub species are the Tanzanian ones? Anyone got a scientific name for them?

    Ole bally try having a look on this site tomsutcliffe.co.za/fly-fishing-diary/143-the-titanic-tigerfish-of-tanzania . he also gives the sub species as hydrocynus tanzaniae.. think i spelt it right...

    OK, I didn't realise they were so wide spread! You could make a lifetime of just exploring this one species! They are an awesome catch!
