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.

Endalgut Island on theTropic Paradise

The last charter This year I did was on board the Tropic Paradise extremely comfortable and great crew on board. Destination Endalgut island.

This was where I had guided early years when there were not enough Fly fishers on my survival list'I got to refine my lure fishing and growing Flyfishers in this magnificent piece of estuary working out of " Stenny's Big Barra Safaris " Camp.
Here the Mini Mini and Murgenella creeks are  on the Southern end and the massive mangrove system of the lower Cobourg National park on the north.
The trip over which I had joined in with my guests required the boats to be towed from Darwin it got rough and while I sat and drank coffee and ate scotch finger biscuits there was a steady run of people throwing up out the back,at times in the three boats you could see one the middle boat dissapeared and the back one was up in the air somewhere,hard to sleep watching that.

That over, the calm waters of the Mini Mini were a welcome sight,first day we landed numerous Barra and Salmon till the wind came up and everyone gave up and headed home to eat then sleep (or vice versa )
Some days hard others a dream, plenty to see and cast to,the big Queenfish were still where I used to find them,in fact everything was still where I used to find them
.                                                          TROPIC PARADISE
Food for thought this a great boat and maybe the mob can field up to a dozen drive down the south and link up with this boat as a base, I  will explore that option.
