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!
