new spot

We (Raymond, Richard and myself) had an interesting fish in a new location just North of Townsville.

We discussed the idea on our regular fly tying night and decided to fish on Saturday. We meet and drove to the location. Raymond was a little worried with the weather conditions but we continued as a scouting trip if nothing else.

We arrived at the location and it proceeded to rain. No problems tried one location and Raymond landed a nice sooty. Nothing else, so onto the next location and we planned with a couple of barra, they looked and we missed! All three of us had a go but no luck!

So off we went to the next location. Nice body of water, a little difficult for casting but still possible. this time we landed a few Sooties and a couple of tarpon. The biggest sooty went to 37cm and heavy.

As darkness arrived we left and went back to the original location to see if the barra and tarpon wanted to play some more. By now it was raining again and Richard and I had left our day glasses in the car so a little difficult to see! Raymond had a couple of goes with a gurgler and showed us how to fish for tarpon at night. Good fun, all you need is a head lamp, floating line, gurgler and of course some fish! All in all a good afternoon and somewhere new to try.
