A note from Justin Nye:

“I recently returned home to Hervey Bay on my trek around Australia when my arm was twisted by good mate Andrew Chozza Chorley from Hervey Bay Fly and Sportfishing to spend 3 months of the Juvenile Black Marlin season inside Fraser Island guiding for him.

This reel and a series of others came from 3 days guiding @capeyorkflyfishing where we set out to get Doug a sight cast Black Marlin on fly off the flats! As you can see in this reel, we had some moments; however, Doug probably experienced the most epic 3 days ever! We saw 40 Marlin on the sand int total, including 28 in one day. 

Doug managed to hook 11 fish and landed 5! All sight casting! Now, I’ve searched far and wide, and I don’t think anyone has ever racked up those numbers of Black Marlin on Fly, especially sight casting on the flats. I feel completely blessed to be a part of it.”
