Permit on Floating Crabs

Australia is home to some amazing flats fishing, particularly in the northern part of the country.

But with the additional pressure on bass this summer in large part due to COVID-19, a new, less-targeted fish has shot to the top of my list: smallmouth buffalo (Ictiobus bubalus, from the Greek for “bull-fish” and “buffalo”). https://flylordsmag.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/C0037.mp4… Read More »Smallmouth Buffalo on the Fly [And How to Fish for Them]
