Managed to get 2 of these on Sunday night.

 This was the first one, it was quite a welcomed surprise.

Cheers riptide - unfortunately not on fly, Itching to learn though, so next time when the conditions are right i can give it a crack.

For their size they go very hard.

I'm yet to attempt chasing a bonefish. A species to check off. Congrats on yours.


The best reason for doing what's right today is tomorrow.
