Next stop- Lake Nosser, Egypt

Heading to Egypt to fish for nile perch on lake Nosser with Jeff Currier and Brent Dawson on the 17-28th of April.

Target species, Nile Perch. The worlds largest fresh water predator.
Most fish are caught trolling with conventional gear. However there are opportunities to cast at laid up fish, such as the ones in this photo, with fly rods. Jeff Currier has been there twice and holds what might be the lake record fish on a fly.
There's also a ton of Tiger Fish in the lake. They eat a wide variety of different things.
Our camp for the week will be one of these fishing boats. You fish all day from the boat or from the shore of the lake then sleep on the boats at night. There's a mother ship where community meals are served in the morning and evening.
Stalking fish from the shore is the preferred method for fly rodders.
Lake Nosser near Asawan Egypt. Sight fishing for huge fish in an exotic location. Sounds like my kind of adventure.

Fantastic! I can't wait to read trip stories and see trip pix. Smooth travels both ways.

Awesome man, can't wait to hear about it-- I'd definitely be interested in how the heck you catch tiger fish on the fly...
