Get the low down on Native species flies.
Flies for native species such as Bass, Murray cod, Saratoga and Barramundi are all exciting species to fish for, as they all surface strike in a spectacular fashion.
They have huge mouths that suck in large volumes of water to attack their prey, in doing so they create a great spectacle for the fly fisherman.
These native flies are a far cry from the traditional flies we use for trout. For surface flies we use a lot of synthetic flashy materials also brightly coloured foam and large rubber legs.
Heavy weighted flies are also tied for bottom fishing mostly using long streamer hackle and flashy synthetics. Hook sizes range from size 6 to 5/0 predator hooks.
