What to Expect
The adventure is yours to decide upon and guided tours can be specifically catered to suit your desires.
The priority is to go fishing and experience the wonderful beaches, wildlife and culture of the Gambian people away from the commercial hustle and bustle of the tourist areas.
For the experienced and more competitive angler, targeting different species from a range of venues that include the beach, coral reefs and river estuaries can be particularly rewarding. Even night fishing is an option, especially early season when large specimens can be targeted.
For the more sedate pleasure angler who is looking for a leisurely day out, a venue can be chosen to suit where patience will be a virtue while catching the sun’s rays.
Bring the family to experience not just the fishing, but also the “trip” to the venue, birdlife and wildlife and even if the fish are not biting, the day will have memories to take home and recount to friends and family for many years.
Light refreshments are provided consisting of bottled water and a sandwich to keep any pangs of hunger at bay.
A beach barbeque of “the catch of the day” can be arranged by prior notice. This may be subject to a small extra cost to cover charcoal, vegetables and cooking ingredients and will also depend on what fish is caught.
Transport is by 4×4 vehicles when off road and shelter from the sun can be provided.
All the necessary fishing tackle will be provided, with top brands of rods and reels available; however, those anglers who wish to bring their own equipment are welcome to do so.
Fresh and frozen bait (prawns and bonga fish) can be supplied for each angler, and deemed sufficient to cover for the day’s fishing trip.
The combination of angling experience and local knowledge is a proven formula for success:
