In Zambesi River Raiders, Dexter Grewcock of Pure Fishing SA is on the trip of a lifetime to Matoya Lodge on the Barotse Floodplains of the Zambesi River. On day one he's targeting Tigerfish, the apex predator in the river, first off using surface lures walk-the-dog style. But it is when he switches to small Bulldogfish live baits that the action really starts and he catches a PB at just over 15lbs, a magnificent trophy fish. The Barotse is also famous for its monster Bream, and after a trip downstream and an overnight camp, Dexter has a second memorable day catching another PB, this time a Nembwe or Yellow-belly Bream at just under 10lbs and then his first ever Thin-faced Bream. Dexter acknowledges what a privilege it is to fish a mighty stretch of river like this and how the experience is literally a spiritual one .
