    Default Gabon. The Guides Company

    My itinerary is Edinburgh-London-Paris-Libbreville-Port Gentil.

    12wt and 14wt rods and the best saltwater reel you can afford.

    Cpt. Arno Matheo and his team as guides.

    It is a dream come true.I fished with Arno(and my son Corin guiding) in Florida on my 60'th. 6 yrs later I only hope I can "man up" and do myself justice. Pics/videos will follow.

    When the poons were sulking the jacks gave us great fun. Up to 50lbs and this little 10kgs Longfinned jack took 25 mins sustained pulling on a 12wt to bring in.

    An African thread fin caught just sub-surface on a tarpon fly. Apparently a really good one, the guides were talking more about this fish than my final fish of the day in the bar that evening. It took 40 mins to bring to the boat.

    10 mins later an enormous bust at the fly and 2hs and 25 mins later we brought a tarpon est. by measurement at 190-200lbs to the boat. Because of the dangers these big ladies present close to the boat pics are not to hand but one of the other guides came close to take some pics and they will appear soon.

    These beautifully coloured fish are the best of eating. We dined on smaller ones one evening with firm, white lovely tasting flesh.
