Golden Trevalley and Tusk Fish Part 1

Fly fishing Airlie Beach / Whitsunday Islands / Great Barrier Reef area. Filmed using GoPro video camera, edited on an Apple Macintosh using iMovie.
Footage provided by Andy Thomsen from andysfishing charters.
For your viewing pleasure, a few good captures. It's a shame a client cancelled his trip on this day, so I fished in perfect conditions, and had a really great day. This was the toughest fight a Golden Trevally has ever put me through..... epic you might say.
Such an epic battle and long fight, I will remember this day for a long time.
The Black Spot Tusk Fish was in perfectly clear and calm water, I was very surprised the fly didn't spook him. Instead he came straight over and ate it!!
Part 2 has a very epic fight from a 91cm Golden Trevally, you get to see the hook up, the fight, the capture and the release. All in crystal clear water.
As requested, Go-So gloves, I prefer the palmless ones so i can feel the line and rod better. They are essential for the amount of time i'm out all day. A few years ago I started getting many spots on my hands that weren't there before, now I use the gloves they are gone again, I feel much better.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through Patreon or Ko-fi. Both offer PayPal payments.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
