about us

A social group of dedicated fly fishers who are passionate about fly fishing in the tropical north of Australia and equally as passionate about the close camaraderie this sport brings. This passion and dedication led to the creation of the NT Flyfishers Social Mob blog site; an interactive and creative outlet where everyone can share our wonderful fly fishing adventures and link into the “after fishing” social events we enjoy in this incredible part of the world.

"Bring it on!"

With the moon showing opaque through night time cloud cover, midges out in full force, only a sheet required for camping, water at almost 29 degrees, and the only wind being the afternoon sea breeze, is the build-up here?? If so “bring it on”. Had the weekend down at Bynoe and can report the good times are back following one of the most disappointing Dry’s during my 15 years in the Top End.

If the build-up is here then the fish are happy because they came out to play. With the big tides this weekend I played Russian Roulette with the flats in Turnbull Bay and around Indian Island in glass-out conditions and was rewarded with good quantities of Barra boated and heaps seen. Threadies seen but could not entice them to eat. While the fish landed and seen were not big it was good fun. My prediction is if the temperature continues for a couple of weeks the larger fish will show. 

Can't remember when I saw calm water this year!!

More flat water

Great to see a number of other Mobsters out there enjoying the conditions and also getting amongst the fish.

Restocking the freezer

Beware if camping at Sandpalms as there must be a ghost there as my Mossie Dome was mysteriously relocated 50 metres into the scrub while I was out fishing!! Did the “White” boat see anything going on?????

Remember, “You’ll never never know if you never never go. Get out there and fish!
