If you are at the point in your fishing where you’re starting to take things a bit more seriously and/or wanting to invest in quality tackle that isn’t going to let you down, the following information will be of benefit. Below is a list of the tackle we use on our rock and beach safaris. The outfits and tackle we use is of the highest quality at the time of writing this booklet. The gear we use may be more expensive than cheaper alternatives, but it is my personal philosophy that if you are going to spend the time and money traveling the distances we do to catch big fish, then you want to make sure you have the best equipment to land those fish.
