Uganda fly fishing trips – Method of angling employing along rod typically 7-11 feet (2-3.5 meters) in length fibre grass, constructed of carbon fibre, or bamboo and a simple arbor reel holding a heavy line joined to the lighter nylon leader.
This rod is used to cast artificial files made to feathers, or synthetic materials typically made to mimic the natural food sources of the fish.
The fly angler puts the long rod back and forth allowing the heavier weight of the line to spur the closely weightless fly frontwise.
Fly fishing is assumed by its fanatics as the most difficult and indeed fulfilling the trick of sport fishing. It has inspired a reasonable body of technical and also a reflecting literature, the most by far of any other angling method.
Big perch: it is recommended a sage 5401 or leeda magnum 140 or 200d or a Tarpon reel for 10 or 11 weight line and lots of backing. The reel has to have a well-engineered disk drag the better the reel the better the chance of catching big fish.
Cortland sea Dacron 20/301b b-s for the big perch and 20 lb-b-s for the smaller fish.
Big Nile perch: 9 Tarpon type AFTM 10 or 11.
Tiger and small perch a standard reservoir type 9.6” AFTM 7 or 8.
Nile perch. Pop lips and white and orange tarpon patterns on 3/0 and 4/0 hooks that must be so sharp. Recommend Tiemco hooks, flies should be big and with a heavy side profile. Fast sink flies are a must they there fore should be heavily loaded.
Tiger fish. Crazy Charlie’s, small deceivers and various reservoirs lures but on heavy sharps hooks and colors, red, white, hot orange and silver.
W.F 10/11 fast and ultra fask sink as well as W.F 7/8 medium sink. The line you will use most for Nile perch II an ultra-fast sink line for Tiger fish.
You will need a lot of spare line as the big fish will take you through the rocks scraping your line and eventually decreasing its strength enormously.
