What to pack for a fishing trip on Lake Victoria and Nile River in Uganda
One to have a successful fishing trip without any disturbance must carry all necessary supplies like spare batteries and camera, mosquito spray, and cigarettes for those who smoke. We suggest you carry as much as possible sun protection such as sunglasses, hat/head net hats, creams, hiking safari boots are used especially for shore fishing from the rough rocks, long-sleeved trousers, and shirts, light-colored clothes for fishing are good because they less attract the tsetse flies than black dark or blue which attracts them, a sweater for the evening is very important for you and a lightweight rain jacket.
Great Adventure Safaris strongly suggest that you carry a hat that has a net to cover your face a neck to protect you from the tsetse flies which are very common while you are out there for your fishing adventure, especially on the River Nile. Strops or sandals are a good idea as you may well get wet feet – especially getting on and off the boat. A camera if you’d like to capture “the big fish” on film and a pair of binoculars if you are keen on bird life.
The best time for sports fishing trips and safaris
Spot fishing is carried out throughout the year but generally, it is best during the driest season of the year which is from June-August and December-February when there is little rain which makes fishing excellent. In Uganda, we catch fish all year round though between March-May and September, it is a rainy season and it is good for tourists to book a fishing safari in Uganda because the rainy season makes fishing difficult.
