Re: A great few hours "Up the Creek"

Nice session Bill. :ll: At first a little surprised at the size & green colour of the fly & thought it would attract a blackfish. But then remembered seeing King prawns on submerged sandbars that I had accidently stepped on & saw they had a green colour also. I know that its a great colour for flath...

Re: Surface whiting & a plastic flathead

Thanks Clutch. :grin: Yeah. I do the same. I was so happy that I had no pain once in the kayak. So it was all systems gooo! :lol: But each morning after getting out of bed, my left lower back just above the hip would give that immediate pull with pain :grr: Then slowly subside through the day. All g...

Re: Surface whiting & a plastic flathead

Just can't help myself. :lol: :roll: Look up SUP foil surfing. That's my challege at the moment. Lol. Lot of fun. Thinking someone sho...

Re: Surface whiting & a plastic flathead

Thanks Rory222. :grin: I'm still jealous of your monster Flathead! :lol: Great post. :grin: It's all a matter of search & destroy so to speak. I have covered quite a few kilometres over the past 6 years to find the best or most likely spots. Then I just return to them on my next sessions & hope for ...

Re: Surface whiting & a plastic flathead

Thanks Bill. Yeah. Not easy flyfishing. But I did have one time where I couldn't miss catching whiting on fly. The fly I made then had a copper wire body & tan feathers going from body to tail. There is one similar in the fly library. But I think the tail should be a bit shorter so the fish dont tai...

Re: Surface whiting & a plastic flathead

Thanks Ozzybass. It's more a matter of finding them. And when found you work on the type of retrieve like a skipping prawn & a continuous retrieve. You usually can find good topwater whiting around ribbon weed patches on sand flats. But also never ignore clean sand flats. Its just a matter of fishin...

Re: Surface whiting & a plastic flathead

Thanks Les. It sure was a great day especially the calmer winds so didn't have to anchor up much unless I got onto a hot bite. :grin: And yeah. My wife had asked for a feed of fish. So I worked hard all day for them. So didn't have time to fool around with the fly rod as I still have to master catch...

Had to travel my usual 3 kilometres or so until finding an area for some top water whiting. Love the way they hit the Sammy lure! :lek:...
