Fingermark Second cast on Sunrise

Well strange times indeed. We went for a fly fish on Saturday hoping to chase some mackeral. Instead we got to our mark of Pallarenda and landed a nice fingermark in the 65cm class. This one on a sinking head line, 12wt rod with a 4/0 white/red fly. We then fished on for a few hours and landed nothing, so off to Rattlesnake and Herald Island. Again no real luck back to the starting point and finished with a few seapike. Not to bad, onto Sunday, different story had a phone call and of we went to a nice freshwater location just north of Townsville. We had some thoughts of a couple of sooties on the 7wt. As luck would have it, we landed 4 sooties, a couple of tarpon and dropped a nice barra. Strange days indeed, with the cold snap there was no thought of catching a barra but now maybe next time! Even though we started as a salt water weekend it ended nicely in the fresh. Here is to next week!
