Matty Richardson goes from strength to strength with consistant quality catches in his Mackay, North QLD base. It's impressive to see the size of the fish he's regually taking on his South Pacific SR690-4 Rod and Eclipse Reel and SP Fly Lines and this is only a modest Sooty Grunty by Matty's standards !

Keep it up Matty, but I don't think you need any prompting though !



Whether Jason Jesse is playing with schools of Trevally on the Thrusday Island flats, or on another of his Torris Strait trips, he's always coming up with excepetional catches. Most fly fishers would be happy to add 1 BB to their species list, let alone a growing number ! The South Pacific SX890-4 & SX1090-4 Rods, Eclipse Reels and Fly Lines are certainly getting put to good use, well done Jason, Gaz

Jason's list goes on & on !!! ... now that's a serious Estuary Cod.



Mat just got back from a wirlwind of fishing across the United States, fishing Florida, Texas, Colorado, California and even Mexico. Mat put the South Pacific Fly LInes to good use across a BIG range of species including, Giant Tarpon, Bonefish, Red Fish, Snook, Peacock Bass and Brown Trout just to name a few !     We had trouble selecting just a couple of photos, but went with a couple of iconic Florida species being a Peacock Bass and a Giant Tarpon. Great work Mat.


Hudson Evans drifting nymphs under a strike indicator on the MacDonald River NSW rewarded him with 8 Rainbows to 50cm all taken with his newly aquired South Pacific Xcel 6wt Trout Outfit. "I sight casted an emerger to another too. Super stoked with all the gear. Thanks again for your help in getting started on the fly, safe to say I’m hooked ! " 

Doug Kimberley Flats fishing for Bonefish on Home Island, Cocos. The South Pacific SX8 rod worked really well, went well into my backing a couple of times, and back again, over a 15 to 20 minutes battle against a GT that turned up.

Glenn Edwards continues to catch fish every trip. And not just fish, but HUGE fish !!! Serious Spanish Mackeral & Golden Trevally taken on his South Pacific SX2 10wt.

Matty Richardson finds fish no matter whether he's in his local creeks or on the flats. Two good size fish taken on his South Pacific SR690-4 & Eclipse 567.

Glenn Edwards at it again !  Just one of his Cocos Island Bonefish taken on his South Pacific SX8 fly rod and Eclipse 1123 reel.

Matty Richardson putting his South Pacific SR690-4 and Eclipse 567 to good use on the Mackay QLD flats and creeks with some fantastic catches on his 6wt, as well as some heafty Sooties & Trevally !

Simon Fitzpatrick, Northern Rivers Sportfishing Guide, knows his way around just about every Bass impoundment and creek in far northern NSW but he ceratinly dosen't neglect any opportunity to cast a fly in the Cod creeks. Two nice Cod taken with his South Pacific Eclipse reel. One of Simon's many Australian Bass features on the South Pacific Bass Bug Fly Line box !



Lachie Stokes rewarded with a nice little Brown fishing a nymph under dry fly, in a local Vic stream on his new South Pacific SX 4wt combo. (Wow Lachie, it didn't take you long, from order delivery, to fish in hand - well done !)

One of our younger customers,Tom Short, has just reached his teens but he's already notching up independent catches seasoned veterans would be thrilled with. Apart from some hefty Rainbows, here's his first first spawn run Brown from the Eucumbene. He also managed an Atlantic Salmon in the lake, very rare, they haven’t released them deliberately since the 60s. Tom's even tying his own flies. His Dad says he's living and breathing Fly Fishing ! 

Grant Harvey - Exploring the Adelaide Hills country yielded his first Brown Trout on a #16 Mayfly Dunn dry fly with his South Pacific SX690-4 fly rod. "Right on dusk, I was stoked !" 


Peter Nicholls, with Sailfish taken off Rompin, Malaysia on his South Pacific BW121380-4 (12/13wt) Fly Rod. 

"The rod performed perfectly and brought the fish in around 7 minutes. The guide estimated the sail’s weight at 32- to -35 kilos. It was released in great condition ready to bring pleasure to the next angler"   (Fantastic effort Peter, Gaz)


Ben Shepherd - First fish on his new South Pacific SX 590-4 combo. Looking warm and snug too in his SP Coldstream Wading Jacket despite the chilly conditions. 


Sam Biddle didn't hold anything back, even head butting his SP Cap into the slippery river bank didn't stop him in his quest to fool tricky Browns on the Ahuriri River, in the Omarama area of NZ. Lot's of monster fish were sighted. Sam returned three fish back to this section of the river..


Todd Allen made his way to the Bariloche region of Argentinian Patogonia in search of BIG trout and he wasn't disappointed. The ultra-clear water made sighting fish easy, but super challenging to get fish to take.  "Gaz, the 7pc 5wt Travel Rod purchased from you, alongside the South Pacific V-Series reel and Trout Water lines couldn't be faulted. The Floating line was a dream to cast - Unbelievable value, Everything outperformed what I was expecting !"  Sounds like a dream trip mate, Gaz



 Glenn Edwards - Costa Rica  (Now that's a fish !!!) 

 Giant Tarpon around 120 lbs. Caught in the ocean side of the river mouth Rio Colarado. Costa Rica. Fishing lodge Brisa Del Mare.

 South Pacific BW1213-4  fly rod & Ecplice 1123 fly reel on 500 grain line. Took about 45-50 minutes to land. All up, 8 fish landed between 40 and 150lb. 


Garry, your South Pacific SR rods and Eclipse reels are great. I have been to Christmas Island twice now after bonefish and your wide arbor Eclipse reels are essential. Here's just one of the 50 plus fish I have landed there.

Alan MaGrath


Glenn Edwards is at again, in the Mackerel Islands WA !

BIG fish, in big bluewater, need a serioud rod and reel.                                                  South Pacific BW1213-4 + Eclipse 1123 reel ... that'll do it !     

I was amazed at how far I could cast with a WF Int line with the BW1213-4 rod. Due to the wind and boat drift I was doing flat casts to form horizontal loops that were as tight as any I have achieved before. Very impressive! 



 Mandy Saxon  - Fishing with Castaway Fishing Charters Port Macquraie     "Hi Garry, thanks again for the casting tuition. My casting has improved ALOT and I caught my first fish on fly ! " ... and a solid Bass at that - well done Mandy.

 Dean Corbett - New Year Flattie on the Frasier Island Flats. South Pacific SX rod - Eclipse reel - Estuary Environs Fly Line



Grant Harvey NZ trip. Central Otago river, South Island NZ. Rainbow Trout to around the 3.5 pound mark, mainly shallow riffle sight fishing on a stony bottom. Matched the hatch with nymphs and dry flys. The SP SR690-4 rod and Advance 78 reel was fantastic !

Mick Bullen - "Hi just returned from a trip up to the Gulf. Smaller Barra landed on a 20 year old 7 Wt trout combo with a Pink thing fly into the Mangroves. Sorry but bigger Barra (insert) went 90Cm (25lb approx) the 7Wt was never going to cut it on these size fish. Had to resort to lures and bait casters "  


 Phil Butler -  " A nice Hen Fish about 2.5 lbs caught on a wooly bugger from Uncle Billys Retreat at Guyra NSW."



Luke A. Saffarek - " Brook Trout caught on a Muddler Minnow just outside of Smithers, British Columbia, Canada. It's a 10 minute walk in to this small lake, but it is full of these 'Brookies' and in the fall you can catch 10-20 an hour, each averaging about 18 inches. You may have noticed i didn't name the lake, that's because this is one of my secret spots, my favorite in the fall."



David Petty -  double header at Nojee, caugth with a dry fly/nymph combo. " that's twice it's happened on the same river ! "


Blind man fishing !
Yes Shane Sandford from Alberton S.A. is a legally blind angler and has only around 10% the normal vision the rest of us often take for granted. Shane spent time undertaking a weekend of tuition with Gazza at A1flyfishing's waterside location on the mid north NSW coast. Shane's first Saltwater fish was a Whiting ( small one for sure- but they all count). Many a fly angler would be happy to get any Whiting on their species list. Shane also went on to take 3 nice Flathead during the morning on the flats. A commendable effort and inspiration to us all.


Our JUNE winner Karl Svensen - Eucumbene River with another Brown and releasing the Big Brown that won him the JUNE comp. BELOW: Karl's Dad - Rolf Svensen with a late arvo Rainbow that took a glo bug rather than the trailing green nymph.

 June Photo Competition Winner !   

Congratulations to the winner of our customers' photo competition.  It was a unanimous decision around the office to award  the winning photo to Karl Svensen . All agreed it was a classic photo of Karl fitted out in classic attire in a very complimentary photo setting. It was not only a great catch, but a commendable effort for Karl to release the beautiful big brown trout as it was his first trophy size fish.  Karl your waterproof fly box is on the way. 

Thanks to all who submitted photos,Happy fishing to you all !
