Easter is here, and the Easter Bunny has brought anglers excellent fishing conditions to help us enjoy our extra-long weekend.
Big spring tides offer plenty of opportunities no matter what style of fishing you favour.
Out on the blue water, Fenton Patches and South Gutter have all produced quality fish; bottom bouncers report coral trout, golden snapper... (more)
The only real expectation for this year’s Aurora Kakadu Klash was that the fishing would be tough.
After all, we’ve just had one of the lousiest wet seasons on record, and reports from the iconic South Alligator River were all negative, including that there was bugger-all runoff happening.
My information gleaned before this great Territory... (more)
I’m away at the Aurora Kakadu Klash where the fishing is tough but some good ones are getting caught.
In my absence, I asked old mate Roger Sinclair to shed some light on the Top End salt water fly fishing scene.

TEBS co-ordinator, Rossco Abraham, said this first round is known as the “Shady and Coastal Round”.
“Competitors were able to fish from... (more)
I was chatting with a mate the other day who had just recently undertaken a trip going right down the South Alligator River, across to the East Alligator River and then right up the East.
