  1. Have been playing with some downsized crab flies over the Christmas period.... And being summer here I used this morning's run-out to test their usefulness on my 2 weight.... The patterns themselves are very simple, and modelled on an Australian pattern known as the VGDC fly (Voltzy's Goldy Destroyer Fly), which is a killer on sweetlip (blue and brown bastards, and golden trevally). My goal was to make them smaller and lighter, and tie them with weedguards. So I tied up a few on size 6 SL45S and B10S for local bream, mangrove snapper, grunter (javelin) and a few other things to have a look at. It was a tough morning, but I sighted a number of fish, and overall was definitely successful. It's closed season for the barramundi, so I only got one shot off at the fella I sighted.... Unfortunately it was a poorly composed photo without a polarised filter on the lens It's been a tough end to 2013 for me, so it was good to get on the water and have a think by myself... I'm still messed up, but hey... I can still tie flies and cast the wand
  2. Hey guys, Got out on the weekend with the Texas based pommy I told y'all about. I wasn't good enough to get him a barra, but he did get a queenfish and a bunch of others. Had most fun throwing small flies into snags holding pikey bream and archer fish. My best two fish came on the 2wt (the bream with a 4lb tippet, and the mangrove jack on a 6lb tippet). I also got a very nice estuary cod. Steve got some nice pics to, but I didn't get many shots of him. See the below piccies.
