Some of you have read my report and know what I caught on the weekend.

I have just finished the video that shows how it all went down.
Please sit back and enjoy!

Awesome mate, can't believe how composed you were after that surface smash & 1st jump!

Well done on the awesome capture.

That fight with the barra is one of the best clips of a kayak fish capture yet.

For me a great part of the fun of kayak fishing is the one-on-one' dogfight feel of playing a decent fish from a yak. You don't get that from a normal boat or landbased. That clip of the barra really shows it.

Thanks Marty, Adam and NorthSIKer,
I have only recently started making videos of my adventures and really appreciate your feedback.
I can't promise any more Barra clips, but I will hopefully captures some more Bass and Jack action soon.
