    I was wondering what bait you put on a crocodile hook

    It's the funniest thing you've ever done! - Take a whole francolin and attach it to the rig with 3 of the largest treble hooks you can find. One through each wing root and one through the breast bone. Wait till the sun goes off the water and lob it into the drink so it hits the surface with as much noise as possible............. they come steaming in, and whoever gets there first, takes it. - Just let the line run till they get to an island of the other bank, and then they swallow it and swim off. Only then do you tighen the line and start fighting them. - Expect the fight to last at least 2 hours even with one of about 2 - 2.5 metres............ they go like crazy and are as dumb as a sack of spanners. Even if they get hooked and lost and you rebait and start again, they'll come straight back for another go!

    You just gotta give it a try at least once in your life.

    I've done an awful lot of hunting over they years, including multiples of all of the Big 5, I've photographed all of the Big 5 from so close I could touch them, I've done all kinds of weird ****, but flatdog fishing is right up there with the very best of memories. - I LOVE IT!

    About the only place I get to do it is in Botswana and most years we go up there for about 2 months. I make a big point of taking 2 sets of tackle up there so I can always get the client interested as well............

    If any of you guys ever get across here, try to make a point of finding a few extra days so you can give it a try! - Let me know your coming and if I'm around I'll come with you AND I'll supply all the tackle!

    Here's a couple more pics.......
