Default Re: Unique Australian Fish, Golden Trevally, Black Spotr Tusk Fish

Hi and Thanks Larry,

The blue fish is called a Black Spot Tusk Fish, also called Bluey or Tusky. They are a very hard fighting fish and as spooky as Trout, I consider them as hard to catch as Permit, although a little less fussy about fly selection.

In Australia most people switch hand as thus the right cast/right reel set up. You just get used to it, I've never seen the need to change, although it is a bit strange. I guess it gives your casting hand a rest while you fight a fish holding the rod with your left.

Happy fishing.
Andy
