Whiting on fly

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Went for a quick flick with my workmate and fishing buddy yesterday arvo. Last chance for local species before i head to thailand for 3 months. 

Anyway, the whiting were more than happy to play. Fish pictured went 36cm to the tip and inhaled the fly so deep it had to be retrieved throught the gills. Biggest would've cracked 40. Unfortunately he was lightly pinned and managed to escape nick's grasp before the glamour shot.


Fly of choice was hammerhead BMS in tan with pink flashy rib, as pictured below. They didnt seem interested in the more elaborate shrimp patterns (probably because theres more baitfish than prawns in the inner west).


After half a dozen or so whiting plus a couple of small but plump bream, we made the mistake of leaving fish to find more fish. Sadly the other side of the bay wasnt as productive.

Hopefully the next report contains a mahseer or peacock bass!

Nice work on the whiting! I've had limited success on the fly rod with these guys. Hopefully I can crack the code in the warmers months ahead.

Bit envious. Not having much luck with whiting out of my kayak.  Still learning.....I seem to be better with flatties and bream.
