Salt Water Fishing
Growing up, salt water was all I had access to, and until
a recent fly fishing trip down south, salt water was all I
knew, and mostly land based fishing at the local creek
Since my youth I have now had the opportunity to try
most other forms of fishing, and although some are
similar in the gear you use, or the species you target, there are still differences you need to consider if
you are wanting to be successful when fishing these other styles.
Variety in Salt Water Fishing Environments
There are a variety of situations you will come across when salt water fishing, that require different
tackle and techniques for the type of fish you are targeting, from flicking a lure or fly along the bank,
casting soft plastics in around structure from a boat or kayak, to trolling heavy lures or bottom bashing
for reef fish, you want to be sure you have the best gear for the job.
Some rods and reel combinations can handle a variety of these different situations, whereas others
need a specific combo for that one situation, or you’re going to struggle to get the results your after.
Deep Sea Fishing
My favourite form of salt water fishing would have to be Deep
There is no better feeling than hooking onto a large reef fish, or
one of pelagic species and fighting with it all the way to the
boat, letting it go, and getting your line back in the water to
hook onto another one.
There are several different ways of fishing the ocean and trying out a number of these always adds a
sense of excitement when you try something new and you hook up on a big one.
Having the right gear, that can handle tough situations and tough fish, is important if you are going to
be successful at this style of fishing.

On Shore Fishing
Working the banks or wadding in to get your line in the perfect strike zone, can
be an extremely rewarding style of fishing.
Having the freedom to trek to un-explored parts of the system, to fish were few
have fished before, and seek out your target species is what fishing is all about.
Lighter gear and gear that is portable and easy to carry, is what you need to
make the most from this style of fishing.

If your lucky enough to have access to a boat, it opens up a
whole range of fishing styles you can do that can’t be done from
Trolling, working the banks around trees and other structure,
and having the ability to quickly get from one part of the fishing
are to another in time for tide changes, or other environmental changes, can really increase your
chances of finding the fish you are targeting.
There is a whole range of fishing gear you can use when your on the water, from GPS fish finders,
water snake electric motors, and the perfect sized boat rod and reel combinations will make this style of
fishing a great experience and hopefully a successful one.

Kayak fishing has taken off in popularity in the last few years,
as kayak construction has greatly improved, and designs have
changed on some variety’s to cater specifically for the fishing
Taking a trip out to sea to work in close reefs and bommies, or
trolling lures at the back of the surf break is now not limited to
powered craft and can be done easily and safely in a kayak.
Similar to in boat fishing, you have the ability to work banks and snags to put your self in the strike
zone, but also reach smaller parts of the river or stream not accessible from land or by powered boat.
Having the right gear to make the most from your kayaking adventures is all part of the charm.

try to see at least once in their life.

The oldest form of sport fishing, fly fishing is a whole new
world to the un-initiated.
Fishing with flies is an art form that not everyone gets the
chance to appreciate, it can be frustrating for the beginner
and can take many years to master the art of presenting the
fly perfectly, on the surface of the water, exactly where you
want it time after time until you encourage the fish to strike.
The gear for fly fishing is specific to this style and it’s important to know what you are using and the
best combinations of gear to use in which situation.
