Fly Fishing

Chasing Golden Trevalley on the Magnetic Island flats.


Enjoying one of the many beautiful beaches of Magnetic Island.

Sunday 10 May 2009

Wet and woolly

Went for a short trip North yesterday and hunted some sootie's and barramundi. Richard and Malcolm came along for the fish and the road trip. We actually covered over 350kms! Some would question the sanity of this and I was questioned on the day.

As it turned out it started to drizzle from about 50km out and continued until we left. The nice part was that we all caught fish. Malcolm a couple or tarpon and sootie's on soft plastics and Richard and I a sooty on fly.

Again the sanity was questioned but it is this point where we look at why we go fly fishing. I personally am not sure. I enjoy the trip, I enjoy the walk and I enjoy the fishing. I do feel I need to catch a fish but that seems to be where it sits. I could get a bit melancholy here but I might leave it. Malcolm thinks I need to get to the high country and chase some trout for awhile and I think he might be right! But we will wait and see. Enjoy the day, enjoy the fish.
