“Of all the liars in the world, fisherman are the most trustworthy.”
Welcome aboard the second issue of Allure; a digital publication presented by Great Fishing Adventures of Australia.
Australia is one of the world's premier fishing destinations, with experiences to suit fishermen of every make and skill level.
Take the Great Barrier Reef for instance — an angler's dream come true. Cast a line into the crystal-clear waters of this natural wonder and be greeted by an underwater world teeming with vibrant coral formations and an astonishing array of marine life. The thrill of the catch here is unparalleled; it could be anything from the iconic barramundi to elusive marlin and snapper. The reef's pristine environment provides a unique backdrop for any angling adventure, as do plenty of spots along the 60,000km (37,280 miles) of coastline we call our own.
Away from the coast, freshwater fishing can be found in an intricate network of lakes, estuaries and rivers which weave their way through the country like arteries. Tasmania is home to one of the oldest and most pristine trout fishing spots in the world, dating back to 1864. With a different climate to much of the rest of the country, a day fly-fishing here provides a completely different experience to the sort you might expect.
Australia's array of islands, capes and peninsulas that are envied the world over, and not just for their varied beauty. In tropical climates in the north fisherman can engage in brutal tussles with mangrove jack or and barramundi, or do the same down south with brown trout. For an adventure you'll never forget, you need to try Heli Fishing in the Northern Territory — landing in remote, pristine locations barely seen by the human eye. It's a glimpse into how the world might have looked 10,000 years ago, and one hell of a day fishing. We're privileged to have access to this extraordinary breadth of experiences on our doorstep. So flick your way through Allure and get planning — make your next fishing trip one you'll never, ever forget.
