Welcome

Australia's northern capital city, Darwin, is a major centre for recreational fishing in Australia and home to locally-produced National Australian Fishing Annual (NAFA)

Established in 1992, NAFA is Australia’s largest and most widely distributed fishing magazine, available through newsagents, selected tackle shops and online. NAFA is a bi-annual, coming out in May and November of each year. It is a large format, full colour, gloss magazine with almost 300 pages of content per edition.

Due to popular demand, NAFA now incorporates a flipover magazine called NAFA's Outdoors 4X4 Travel & Camping. With this new addition, NAFA is not only a reliable and authoritative source for information on all aspects of fishing and boating, but also 4WD, travel and camping.

This quality magazine contains informative articles and first-class photography from the best writers in the country and also features the popular NAFA Good Gear Model Pictorial.

With Cyclone Alfred fizzing out and heading away from the Top End rather than across it, we are now entering one of those windows in the wet season that I have written about before.
According to the Bureau of Metrology, conditions should be fairly dry for at least the next week; ie there is no active monsoon expected for the time being.
Mind you, as far... (more)

When it rains, it pours… that’s surely is what this wet season is all about.
Last week, I wrote: “Following the massive deluge across the western Top End mainly last weekend, all the big rivers within a day trip of Darwin are well and truly flooding.”
But much more rain was to follow, especially in the East and South Alligator... (more)

“We’re definitely going to have a March Runoff” were the prophetic words of Fishing and Outdoor World’s George Voukolos.
Following the massive deluge across the western Top End mainly last weekend, all the big rivers within a day trip of Darwin are well and truly flooding.
It’s interesting that Darwin and environs generally... (more)

You couldn’t write a better script for this wet season and the potential of a great runoff… especially after two abysmal Wets and “that sucks” runoffs.
Once again, my favourite Daly River is powering through the wet season and getting more than its fair share of deluge.
The last two major Daly floods were a bit late in the season... (more)

There’s been some terrific widespread rain over the last week and it’s done the trick for all our major tidal rivers.
I heard Magela Creek was 1.2m over the road early this week and all three Noulangie Creek causeways on the Kakadu road were flowing right up to the top of their banks.
So both the East Alligator and the South Alligator Rivers... (more)

If there’s one thing that will get a kid to put his or her phone down for a minute, it’s a bent rod with a fish on the end of the line.
I’ve said and written many times before that fishing is one of the best activities that kids and teenagers can get into.
It teaches them all manner of skills, including such things as: problem solving,... (more)

It looks like it’s time to get all fired up again about chasing one of those lucrative red-tagged barra.
I find it interesting that there were six $10,000 fish caught in the first fortnight of the Million Dollar Fish (MDF) campaign last October, and then not one more until last weekend when Benjamin Kaart bagged his cash fish in Darwin River.
Maybe... (more)
