“My go-to tigerfish fly when I get to Chobe is a sort of stripped-down Clouser. Rip everything off it. It doesn’t even look like a fly when you are finished with it. It looks like a hook with two eyes, a little bit of red and a little bit of black bucktail. Quite big, super heavy, very sparse. Get it deep down. You can throw the biggest, hairiest flies and they are not interested unless it’s on the top like a popper. Otherwise, this fly is it.”
