This year's 51st Kariba Invitation Tiger Fishing Tournament (KITFT) is in full swing (17th - 19th October) on Lake Kariba.
Wild Zambezi is delighted to report that the KITFT Committee agreed for the first time in the history of the tournament to introduce a Catch and Release policy this year...
It is being run as a sub-tournament. 10 teams have been drawn from a hat at the Captains Meeting, and are fishing on a Catch and Release basis.
Methods of recording fish weights and viability are being tested with a view to extending the Catch and Release policy in future years.
This is excellent news for the sport.... and the fish! Well done KITFT!
