Video-Hedland Spanish Mackerel on fly


Since the first time I picked up a fly rod I have always wanted to catch a Spaniard on fly. I got that opportunity recently whilst out wide off Hedland with Captain Leith and his beautiful boat Real Screamer. My little brother Andrew filmed it and this is how it went. I had hooked and lost a few before this one as I did not want to use wire. I ended up using a really short length of single strand that was connected directly to the fly. It worked a treat.  


Enjoy the video,

 Thanks for putting in the extra effort to see it gents, I have put the actual link there now. 

For the more technical people out there, how do I embed a Youtube video? I tried [YOUTUBE] at the start and end of the video code and it obviously did not work. HELP PLEASE!!
