Lets kick it off with a species that holds a powerful attraction for me personally. Sailfish. Speed, aggression, spectacular aerial displays and stunning colours. What's not to like!?!? So another trip to Kuala Rompin booked for August 2018 to feed the 'addiction'

Cheers

A perfectly laid down 60 foot cast will catch more fish than casting to the backing knot on your 120' fly line...particularly when most times you'll just throw an 80 foot 'wiggle cast'.

Good start of 2018 for me too

WOW,
I know its not massive, but it is my first serious experience with fast fish and it is still WOW.
   Aparently I did well with 2 fish (in 4h)out of many baitballs we approached, which were getting hit by the superfast Macktunas.
  In few (well most) situations by the time we approached the school, and I put myself to the position the school was alrady 100m away in different direction...

  ...but after this WOW back on Earth and reflections of what could be done better, and what will be done better if next trip comes along.
- be cool- I couldnt- first time, fish busting just in the river mouth, and the exitment takes over- tangle, bad casts. 2 baitballs later we back for a hunt- heart pumping, but undercontrol

- look where the fish travels- normaly you would cast in the middle of the school, but by the time you start stripping, they are already gone. Its not always easy, but I think casting ahead of them could help

- avoid casting to the school in front of the boat- if you do so, by the time you recover your slack line( boat is still drifting forward), fish will be long time gone.

- be a friend with a lean bar ( if there is one). It was chopy, and I try to get to the fish ASAP, that I lost my focus in safety- not good- try to stay in the boat ha ha

- stripping guards on the fingers.
 After the cast stripping has to be very fast. When we travel to find the fish, my line was ready on the deck- ready, but DRY. Quick cast, quick strip, and even quicker LINE BURN on my finger ha ha

- and the best on the end. My very bad DBL HANDED STRIPPING( working on it now). I reckon it cost me few fish.
  Mate, you have to have your coordination in place. After quick cast I start the dbl handed strip and I start wraping my own arms ( exitment of tuna chasing the fly won again), reel and rod butt, and I decided ( many times) to stop and untangle instead hooking a fish and break things.

Hey ,fish cought on HT10 :yeahhh: :yeahhh: , but its too late for the HT entry :p

   Awsome day, and more to come.
cheers

It's an exploration; bring a flyrod.
