Fly Fishing

Chasing Golden Trevalley on the Magnetic Island flats.


Enjoying one of the many beautiful beaches of Magnetic Island.

Sunday, 1 February 2009


Thought I would just add a bit about tarpon fishing. In this weather (and yes I was out for an hour or so this afternoon!) it is a good time to hit the lagoons chasing tarpon. First safety must apply and you need to keep a weather eye and a croc eye out as both are moving now. You only need to find a lagoon or waterway with rising fish. So far I have found a nice spot easy to get to and I have managed to land fish to about 35cm each time I have gone. I won't say where!! But what I have found is running water works well a deep edge helps and stormy weather is a bonus. I use a 5wt on floating line with up to a 8kg tippet. The tippet is high as some of these fish hit the fly that hard that the line breaks! Before you ask I use a fluro carbon line and it is relatively new. The fly of choice is my pink and black in a size 8 chemically sharpened hook. I have some success with poppers but they are visually great but hook up rates can be low. You can also use clousers and deceivers in the more subdued colours. I hope this helps those of us struggling to get out.
