(Main photo above: Sailfish in pursuit of a teaser)
Fly fishing is one of the most exciting ways to catch a sailfish. It may not be for everyone, but for those who pursuit this challenge the action is heart pounding when it all happens.
Seeing a dark shadow approaching the trolled teaser and finally hitting it from behind or side swiping it gets the adrenalin flowing.
Everyone springs into action.
While the crew teases the sailfish (often more than one) closer to the boat, the angler gets ready and tries to calm his nerves.
That will be followed by a lot of shouting adding to the thrill…
Behind my teaser!
CAST! CAST! Strip! Strip! STOP!
Where is it?! Is it still there?
There! There! It is following your fly!
Wait! Strip! Wait!
Wow, just writing that makes me picture all the action again and makes my fingers twitch!
Will upload some videos of Kuala Rompin’s sailfish on fly action as soon as possible.
