MASAAI FISHING. “Do Masaai ever fish?” A couple of negative head-shakes answers my question. I start thinking that I should maybe rig my own line. We keep walking along a game trail and scouting out coves to see if they are occupied by resident hippo pods or crocs. We settle on a spot and I cast a few times into the slow moving Mara River. I hook a huge catfish within minutes. My Masaai guides are psyched; they clamor over the rocks to reach the extra pole. Suddenly Masaai fish.
