Smile Headed to Perth Australia Nov 1st

Going to perth to visit my son for 3 weeks. Does anyone have any experience around this part of the world or any ideas what to bring or where to fish. I'm a steelhead flyfisherman from Montana. Thanks: Larry

I have a good friend there. I heard of some saltwater fly fishing in Broome. My friend and his relatives often vacation there and do some fishing.

Well North of Perth there is some spectacular Salt water Fly fishing,

Everything from Barramundi/ Bones? Permit/ Queenfish through to Sailfish.

But locally in the Perth area you will struggle for good flyfishing I think.

November a good time of year in New Zealand on your way down or back.

Or a pretty good time of year for trout in Tasmania, sight fishing big browns in the highlands.

Check out http://www.flylife.com.au/forum/default.html

become a member and ask the question there, great bunch of Aussie and Kiwi Fly fishers including some from Perth.

I'm from Sydney so Perth is like a 5 hr flight West of here, but the guys on flylife will help you out I'm sure.

Regards Pogo
