I recently had the good fortune of fishing some remote flats in Oz and on the day in question, I had had a good flats session and as the tide started running out, some good sized blacktip reef sharks moved onto the flat and I managed to pin one. Soon thereafter a small bull shark (or “zambezi” as we know it in South Africa) came up the line and I got really lucky and managed to feed it my fly. The added bonus was that it was from terra-firma and a free-swimmer – no boat and no teasing or chumming.
Now I’m in the market for tiger and a hammerhead on the flats!
The bull shark is a great catch in my opinion Richard! Which fly (or flies?) did you fool those two fish with?
got them both on brush flies
Great fish that Zambo! How did he fight? I remember the small I got years ago was super dogged and very aggressive when I got him up close.
ya it gave a rather good account of itself!
