Discover Flinders Island

Paradise Right at Our Door. Anglers Heaven.

In January this year a friend and I decided to head over to Flinders Island and investigate the rumours we had heard about fish that literally queued up to take a lure or bait - all sounded a bit fanciful to me - but then, what if it was true?By the time all our rods were loaded aboard the Air Charter flight from Bridport to Flinders Island, the plane closely resembled an aerial porcupine and it was a credit to the pilot that he was even able to get the plane off the ground let alone make to the Island - you can never have enough rods really, can you?Accommodation is plentiful on Flinders with something to suit every taste and budget, from camping on Crown land with no facilities at all, right through to renting a holiday home or the affordable luxury of one of Partridge Farm's "bush retreats" with its panoramic views over Franklin Sound, we opted for something in the middle and stayed in one of the units at the Furneax Tavern in the small township of Lady Baron.

Brushy Lagoon 2/8/2012

My eldest daughter Demi has just come off her exams and had a student free day today.
I suggested a couple of hours at Brushy and she jumped at it.
It's been quite a while since we have been out fishing together, time just gets away.

It didn't take her long to catch her couple of Atlantic's (as they were over 600 mm in length, the bag limit is two).
A bit of fun.
