The Montebello Islands, lying some 120 nautical miles North-West of Ningaloo Reef and Exmouth in Western Australia, are a sub-tropical archipelago of over 170 small limestone islands, and coral reefs with colourful marine life. Fringed by coral reefs, the islands are interspersed with lagoons, bays, flats, and channels home to a huge variety of species to target on fly. Fly fishing targets include the Indo-Pacific Permit, Blue Bastard, Black-spotted Tuskfish, Queenfish, and Giant Trevally, while the deep waters surrounding the islands are also home to prolific numbers of Sailfish and Juvenile Black Marlin.
While Exmouth nearby is regarded as one of Australia’s best sportfishing destinations, the remoteness of the Montebello Islands means that it receives very little fishing pressure. And with over 450 species of fish available and marine sanctuary nearby, fly fishing the Montebello Islands is one of Australia’s best-kept secrets. Accessed by the very comfortable 70ft monster sportfishing mothership, the overnight journey from Exmouth maximises fishing time, with a fleet including flats skiff, game boat, and sports fisher all available throughout the week. Complimented by arguably Australia’s best billfish skipper – Eddie Lawler and the experienced guide team, the week is an unforgettable adventure with great hospitality and memories that await.
