Big Barramundi... and plenty of 'em!

Hi guys,

I had the most amazing flyfishing day in my life a few days ago. I was fishing in a private pond in Bangkok with my flyfishing guru, Max, who hails from the Outer Hebrides.

Between us, we caught around 50 big Barramundi. The smallest one was 7 lbs and the biggest was right at 20 lbs!

These are, by far, the hardest fighting fish I've EVER had the pleasure of catching. I made the mistake of having one of my fingers on the fly line when the first fish hit. It stripped off line faster than a machine coulda done! I got a bit of rope burn... lesson learned.

The day before this, I fought and lost a record Nile Perch and I had a record-sized Peacock Bass miss a popper... arrrgh!! I just about had the Nile Perch landed, but it shook the hook right as we were getting ready to net it.

Very nice! You need to change that link in your post though and just use the yellow insert image button instead and copy/paste the URL for each photo in the popup box that comes up. The link is going to get deleted since it goes to a site with commercial links to non-sponsors.
My passion for catching fish is eclipsed only by the fish's passion not to be caught.

As Teflon-Jones mentioned, the link got deleted because they were to commercial, non-sponsors of the forum site. This was done in accordance with site policy.
