Papua New Guinea’s fishing grounds have always been protected by the ever-changing tropical climate, keeping its secret from intruding anglers. It is only recently that fishing enthusiasts have discovered that Papua New Guinea is teeming with isolated fishing grounds and untouched rivers, offering the some of the best lure in the world.
In dense jungle rivers, our world renowned champ, the mighty ‘lure shy’ Papua New Guinea Black Bass, will challenge any intruding angler who attempts to toss their trespassing lures in its habitat.
Another remarkable fish is the river tiger, which is found nowhere else in the world. If you think you are an expert angler, be warned – you have not met your match. The ‘Blacky’ is a persistent, mean monster that will put an expert angler back to the novice class!
If you’re after a less challenging Papua New Guinea adventure, try out the Barramundi. With river fishing, you have the opportunity to meet the locals and if you are lucky, you might see a traditional singsing. Relax on the river, where you can simply enjoy being alone in the pristine jungle, away from all the worries of everyday life. If Barramundi is your game, stay at the remote Bensbach Lodge near the border of Irian Jaya.
For those who prefer the ocean, the underwater predators of Papua New Guinea’s Bismarck and the Archipelago Seas are poised to erase any memories of an angler’s past catch.
