Gear

We can supply all fly gear as part of your guided fishing day. However if you would like to bring your own fly gear, read below.

A 10 weight is the best all round fly rod for our fishing. The best general purpose fly line is the Scientific Angler Sonar Sink 30 clear, 350 grain, orange with a clear tip. Your 10 weight fly rod should be matched with a quality fly reel with at least 250 metres of 50 pound gel spun backing. 

A floating fly line is also handy for throwing poppers or trying your luck at a milkfish.

A 12 weight fly rod with intermediate or floating line is handy for tackling monster trevally, billfish and XL cobia. 

 

Our fishery is so diverse that a large variety of flies are required to cover all bases. In summary you will need clousers, deceivers, big Gotchas, weighted crazy charlies, shrimp and crab patterns, billfish tube flies... 

 

Suitable flies are supplied at cost as part of the guided fishing. If you are a keen fly tier or want to get fully kitted up before arriving, email us for a detailed list of the best flies.

We recommend Tonic polaroids and you will also need a lens cloth or tissues with lens spray to keep your polaroids clean. A hat, sunscreen and sensible clothing, including footwear that is ok to get wet getting in and out of the boat.

 

We cannot guarantee that any sensitive electronic equipment will remain dry in the boat so it is best to bring along a waterproof bag.
