Set deep in an untouched corner of the Salous, this area is famous for being home to monster 20lb+ tigers. Combine the size with speed, strength, aerial antics and aggressive nature of the tiger fish, and dump it all in two rivers flowing through one of the words last true wilderness areas, home to big game, and then you may begin to get an idea of just how unique the twin fisheries of the Mnyera and Ruhudji Rivers really are. The season runs from August to November and its during these months when the water temperatures rise and the clarity increases that the trophy tigerfish of Mnyera and Ruhudji rivers begin to feed aggressively. The average number of trophy fish landed per week has been consistent throughout the seasons with more 20lbs+ tigerfish caught in these rivers than all the worlds rivers put together.
