Aussie Fly Fisher - The Cape

Red dirt roads and remote river systems, Cape York is an iconic part of Northern Australia. It is no secret that Cape York is a fishing mecca. From large T.Anak Permit to hard fighting Barramundi this is one of the most exciting places to bend a fly rod Downunder.

Cape York offers an extensive array of fly fishing terrain and it is not uncommon to encounter over twenty-five species in a weeks fishing.

Anak Permit, an endemic species of Australia is a huge draw card for the Cape York flats, along with Blue Bastards, Golden Trevally, Tuskies, and the odd large GT. The river systems are full of life – Barramundi, Mangrove Jack, and Queenfish are all regularly encountered.

Weipa, QLD, although remote is a daily flight from Cairns, Australia. Easy access via Qantas from all major Australian cities within a day. We offer day trips for anyone who finds themselves in the area wanting to explore a little more. And week long all inclusive adventures. Cape York has so much to explore and we look forward to sharing this wonderful part of Australia with you. We offer tailored accommodation packages to make your stay easy and enjoyable.
