Townsville milk fish

Milk fish a truly remarkeable fish! After noticing some fish movement while out for a walk, I rang Richard and we decided to see if we could catch them. On the next morning with a rising tide, we approached with all our gear hoping to land one of these fish. After 3 hrs we had managed to get a hit and a nice run. Thinking this may be a bit harder than it looks we decided to hit the internet and track down some flies and techniques and try again the next day. This time armed with what we thought was the right ammunition we hit the water again. Again after 2hrs of fishing nothing not even a touch! As Richard had to leave we tried once more this time it happened, we changed techniques and had 2 hits, interesting, then it happened it all fell into place and after an extended fight a nice milk fish was landed. Rod was a 8wt intermediate line with a 5kg tippet and bread fly, no berley was used. I have only include an in water shot and head shot to try and keep the location a secret, yeah right!
