Bream on fly.....Nice!

Well luck had a lot to do with it but I landed a nice bream on fly today at Alva Beach. The club had planned to fish Cungula but when we arrived the water was to far away so on we went to Alva. When we arrived the tide was still running out but very near the bottom of the tide. We had 4 flyfishers and Joanna and her grandchildren. We fished for about 3 hours and managed to land flathead, trevally, gar, barracuda and a bream. The children landed some whiting on bait. We finished with a cup a tea at the park. A nice morning.
About the bream. I have been trying to catch a bream for awhile but I have not really been targeting them. I thought this weekend I would try. Cungala I thought would be a good spot with the snags and mangroves, but instead we moved to Alva Beach. I used an intermediate with a white clouser and simply floated the line down the current line. I was chasing flathead but thankfully the bream hit it instead! So this time a lucky catch, Bob did the best of the crew with 4 flathead to 47cm and a barracuda.
