Big Game Fly Fishing
"The IGFA saltwater fly fishing world records were literally rewritten in 1998 in the south-east fishery of Port Stephens. The newly recognised billfish on fly capital of the world was realised with a staggering total of five world records for Black and Striped marlin taken during the Marlin season"
Dean Butler-world renowned big game flyfishing specialist
The boys on Calypso, having helped pioneer the sport of big game fly fishing in Australia, means you will be guided by one of the most experienced fly fishing Captains and crew, some of the most successful in the World for big game flyfishing. For Fly Fisherman interested in targeting a World Record on Fly and who fish the waters of Guatemala or Costa Rica then you may be interested in Port Stephens.
What makes Port Stephens unique is that whilst we don't have multiple sailfish in Port Stephens like Guatemala or Costa Rica we do have multiple amounts of blue, black and striped marlin. What you will see in Port Stephens is potential World Record size marlin. We have just taken taken the Ladies World Record this week (March 2008) with a 62.4kg striped marlin on 16kg (8lb) line beating the previous record held of 49 kg.
Congratulations Diana Owen of North Carolina.
