What kind of fish is that? Is it saltwater or fresh? What flies are you using?

I'll second those questions.

What the hell is that?
It looks fast and strong.

What's the fly?
Short shank hook / syn hair for a belly / a little flash and white bucktail on top? With a little bit color on the head...

They are regarded as a pest of a saltwater fish, but great fun on the fly.

The fly they seem to like is just some white bucktail and a few strands of flash.

Nice 'pest' to have around. Nice, simple flies. I like simple filies. Thanks for the pic.

That's funny, I thought you were sort of making a joke calling them Australian salmon. They look like neat fish to catch. Anything that takes a fly is not a trash fish to me!

Alex is right they are Pests Beautiful Fish really good to catch & they are usually everywhere along our Beaches however I'd Rather catch Silver Salmon anyday however even though I haven't caught them for a few years a couple of Die - Hard Fishing Mates up North are always wanting me to go with them to catch them.

Alex I Like The Allen Reel as I have 3,2 Series I & A Series II.
