Fly fishing Cape York, Australia – client trip report

Fly fishing Cape York, Australia – client trip report

Dennis and the guys recently returned from Cape York, aboard a 51 foot Riviera luxury game boat, which provided access to some great water and outstanding saltwater fly fishing throughout the week …

Dear James

Long and short of it is we had a MARVELLOUS time.

The crew, Daiman, Clint, Donny and Aden were superb and we all felt as if we had made new friends. The mother ship was great – well appointed, comfortable and well run by a very professional crew.

The fishing was very interesting ( most of the guys had not done much serious saltwater fly fishing)  and they all came away expressing pleasure at their improved competence. The range of fish astonished us all.

Golden Trevally, Brassy Trevally, Giant Trevally, Tuna, Barramundi, Giant Herring, Permit and Mangrove Jacks were all landed throughout the week, to name a few. Plenty of double hook-ups and being able to fish rivers, creeks, flats and the bluewater certainly appealed. The weather was very kind also.

Just incredible. We were all stunned by the number and ferocity of the sharks! WOW! Staying on board certainly took on a new meaning. Everything ran like clockwork and the guides and boats used made it a very relaxed and enjoyable experience.

The meals were first class. We would have eaten fish every night  – the fish that we had was outstanding.

This is a top operation and we would recommend you to any and all of our friends. I am sure that you will see some of us back again. I personally will be looking to go somewhere I haven’t been before and will continue dialogue with you on this.

All in all a wonderful ten days away.
