flyfishing only

Hi folks I thought I would do a general and catch up report. Over the last couple of weeks I have done a lot of fishing mainly for tarpon and the odd barra. While I have managed to catch tarpon each trip its mainly been at my favorite spot which is called spot x on the site. So I have not really been putting info up. As such the tarpon have been working well and enough were caught to keep me happy. We had a fish at the beacons last weekend and I lost a good number of flys but did not hook up to any mackerel so I am working on that one! In the past I used to do well but lately my hook up rate has dropped away so more work needed. We moved the boat to middle reef and had a nice drift and I landed a coral trout and stripey both just under legal. Again no photos yet. This weekend I decided to go for a paddle on the kayak of the beach I fished for 2 hrs with a couple of hits. Then as it seems to happen in the last hour a landed a nice fingermark. A little suprising in the area but still very happy as can been seen from the photo above.
