What’s your catch and release policy?

The Lower Ord is one of the last unique pristine rivers in Australia, and such we encourage catch and release of fish. We will however keep a size fish for our onboard for BBQ lunch.

However any fish that are kept are in line with WA Government size and bag limits.

Are we guaranteed to catch a fish?

We cannot guarantee a fish, however you are with one of the best guides in the East Kimberley, so chances are good !

What type of fishing technique do we use ?

Flicking Lures as the name suggests specializes in Lure fishing. However there will be times when  live baiting will be used, this will be at the discretion of Mick.

I’d rather have a bad day fishing, than a good day at work!
