HINCHINBROOK ISLAND / CHANNEL & SURROUNDS
This is the home of the iconic T-Anak Permit in Australia. Our specialty in North Queensland. Our guides have been fishing the Hinchinbrook area for over 20 years. With a vast knowledge of the region we will always find you some fish to throw a fly at, no matter what the weather throws at us. From hundreds of acres of sand flats to hundreds of kms mangrove lined creeks, the species of this unique and pristine area will blow your mind. From Permit to Barramundi and everything in between. If you're a fly fishing saltwater beginner or a seasoned Permit hunter chasing the spectacular Aussie T-Anak we will help you achieve your goals. Our Hinchinbrook trips are multi day trips where we will look after all your needs including accomodation.
There are so many high quality options, from day trips to multi day trips in the Townsville region. Boasting several coral and sand flat areas as well as dozens of creeks and rivers to get you casting flies to a myriad of species. Townsville also offers a stocked Barramundi fishery that can see you getting the chance to cast flies amongst the Lilly pads where some very big Barra lurk beneath.
We offer multi day combo trips in the Whitsundays/Proserpine region. Imagine yourself doing a couple of days fishing pristine sand flats for Permit and Golden Trevally or coral flats for Black Spotted Tuskfish and then heading off to fish the famous Peter Faust Dam sight casting to 1m plus Barramundi. The AFO team is here to look after all this for you. Our Whitsundays trips include accomodation so you can fly into Proserpine airport and leave the rest to us. Your guide will pick you up and take you on to your accommodation, then the fishing trip of your dreams.
FRESHWATER JUNGLE CREEKS
North Queensland has some of the most spectacular crystal clear jungle streams suited to casting hopper style dry flies for the iconic Jungle Perch and Sooty Grunter. Throw in a bonus of Barramundi, Mangrove Jack and Tarpon and you could end up with the freshwater “Big Five” on your day out walking or canoeing in some spectacular scenery. Day trips available from Townsville.
