Grandson Luke Guiding on the Okavango River

All rivers do not run into the ocean. The Okavango River is the forth longest river in Africa. It is a 1000 miles long and flows southeast into Botswana forming the world's largest inland delta. Luke was a fishing guide this October (09) on the Okavango River where he caught the 10.5 lb Tiger fish shown in the picture above. Luke carved the heads for the poppers from a piece of old shoe and used a fly rod to work the popper on the surface. He said "It was incredible to watch these fish take the poppers off the surface." These Tiger fish are one of the fastest in the world when hooked. Thanks Luke for sharing with us. Glen Beachy editor of this site
