A new gallery of images taken on our last trip to Baja visiting East Cape and Cabo San Lucas is now online. Still working on some video and more pictures but it is time I shared something here at Aussie Fly Fish. More on the way mates!
A new set of photos available on my smugmug site. Tarpon, Bonefish and other pictures added. Lots of crazy little tarpon to view. Isla Blanca Gallery
Well here it is for 2015 our new website for Fly Fish Isla Blanca. There is even a language selector for all my non-english reading friends around the world! Lots of new photos and information for those anglers fishing the Cancun area on vacations or stopping through on the way to other destinations. #flyfishcancun #saltwaterflyfishing #flyfishislablanca #tarpon #bonefish #permit #snook

What a difference today was with sunshine and plenty of fish making a splash. Al Keller had us on a few ripper redfish today after a brisk run to the grounds. We had a brief stop along the way to drag a wayward boat off a mud flat. 5 guys were happy to see us but a little embarrassed about cutting the corner too close. A couple of snaps of today’s fish below. More from New Orleans soon. Randall and Kate.
I have just uploaded a new video online this short 1.5 min clip shows a bonefish that I found buried up to his gills in the sand before I cast to him. We were fishing at the Pesca Maya Fishing Lodge in Mexico. This is a first attempt with Final Cut Pro software so I’m having a step learning curve with audio etc. All of your feedback both good and bad is appreciated. Thanks Mates.
Just back today and uploading our media cards to computer. We had some fair weather on this trip but the fishing was a little tough on the Palometa flats. Strong Northerlies for a couple of days and then it turned the other direction just as hard. While some species were thin pickings the tarpon played the game and we had some really fun topwater sessions using gurglers. These were tied by good mate Al Simson Kettafly and provided us with many aggressive surface takes and high flying tarpon antics. Check out the fish throwing the fly in this jump shot. More photos and video soon and thanks for stopping by and having a look. (clicking on image will give you the enlarged view)
