Species: Bonefish, GT, Bumphead Parrotfish, more
For the past two years Australians have been limited to travel within their own country. This is not all bad news when you realize the diversity of fishing options in Australian waters. In early 2021, Josh Hutchins, of Aussie Fly Fisher, and film-maker, Kane Chenoweth, set off to one of Australia’s most remote regions in search of clean water, tropical vibes and big fish – the Cocos Keeling Islands.
With bountiful bonefish, intermittent shark-dodging, and relaxed Island vibes – Cocos was full of surprises.
Despite schools of bonefish and the odd-GT distraction, we had a primary goal for the trip: a Bumphead Parrotfish. We’d seen it done in the Seychelles, and we wanted to catch one in our home waters. Let the mission begin…
Full of excitement and beautiful fish, Cocos does look to be entertaining!
The Fly Fishing Film Tour is coming back to Austin on March 25! The event will be held at the Paramount Theatre. TFFF will be there (hopefully with a booth) and if you want to go, get your tickets here:
