Fly Fishing

Chasing Golden Trevalley on the Magnetic Island flats.


Enjoying one of the many beautiful beaches of Magnetic Island.

Saturday 5 April 2008

Missed again

Hello everybody my name is Ward and I will try to put some info on fly fishing in Townsville on Malcolm's site. I have been fly fishing since 2000 after I caught my first trout! Since then I now only fly fish and try to catch all the species available to me. Lately I have been chasing small Barra and tarpon in the fresh and Nannagai, Trevally, mackerel, Flathead and Queenfish in the salt. I had an interesting experience with the Townsville Baptist fishing club today. My boys and I decided to beat the wind and fish from 2030hrs till early morning. This worked well for the boys with Nannagai, cod, Sweetlip and Grunter caught all on bait, but I managed to miss all the fish at the sites we went to, so I will have to work on the night fishing!! The places we fished included a barge off Pallarenda, an inside spot off Magnetic Island and a seaward spot near West Point (Magnetic Island). I hope this info helps? As the site develops I will try to give reports on types of flies that work and how to fish them.
