    Pleasure pal.
    That size fish give a good account of itself. They around 2 kg's, I get a few of them every other day on a 9 weight and it can bend it very nicely.
    You will have fun targeting Garrick. They are also a gentleman fighter and will keep close to the surface during the fight.

    Good luck

    I'm convinced that i now need to start tying.
    I find it such a struggle to find and buy the right stuff.
    Like I said I am a "inlander" so my salty flies are pretty much what I could find to buy over the years, if I tie which I have very little time to do these days, i concentrate my efforts round bread and butter freshy flies.

    I guess what I am saying is if you can buy a white popper or clouser/deceiver that is what the flies look like

    I would really appreciate a pic of the poppers and clousers that worked for you.
    It was a proper fight, yes. Strong fish. Had the shakes for a while after landing it... The exciting thing for me is that the whole experience is very visual. From the chase to the actual take and then the fight. Lovely!

    The rod I used was an 8/9 weight, with 9wt floating line.

    The poppers and clousers are pretty much standard shop-bought flies. Il see if i can get some images of them.

    Default Flippers


    Don't be scared to fish flippers for the breede leeries they are partial to them

    They are super simple to tie

    Hook 34011 2/0
    Medium density Foam 5mm stream x
    Body cactus chenille
    Tail buck tail and flash

    Cut the foam rectangular 1.5 times the length of the shank and cut a v in the tail section
    Tie in tail
    Then tie in the back of the foam tail sticks out the vee
    Tie in the Chinele and wrap a body
    Tie in the front of the foam leaving a big lip
    Superglue the tie in points
    I fish with scissors and trim the lip on the water to stop any spinning and cut back if it's super calm or head wind
    I use an intermediate line as it "anchors" the flipper in the water and gives it a darty action

    Tight lines

    But your reasoning has a fatal flaw; it overlooks the fact that to comprehend it requires that one rub a few brain cells against each other. The heat thus generated produces the light that illuminates the fact, but alas, not everybody has the resource required to fuel the process --SG
