Often this time of year (Summer), whilst working the shallow waters between Tofo and Tofinho, big silver fish can be seen lolling about the surface.

Surfing Mozambique’s surprise left-hander

Surfing Mozambique’s surprise left-hander Cyclone Dineo caused serious havoc in a lot of people’s lives, leaving behind destruction that will take years to rectify.

The tides of March are marching

Fishing Barra

Fishing Barra, Inhambane, Mozambique

Fishing Barra Although a fraction, a tiny fraction, of what it used to be, Barra can still shine as a fishing destination. A half century ago, Barra would have been an unbelievable spectacle.
