A little like catching trout in a hatchery I guess, seeing as you couldn't help but hook a fish in that kind of chaos, except that most trout would probably struggle to snap a 12 weight...

Enjoy ;)

Having only ever fly fished for trout, I'm not much of a fly angler. I turned to lure angling many moons ago and never looked back, I love it. Either way, I wouldn't mind chucking a lure in there!

In Southern Oman I got a couple of shots at YFT from the bricks, had my butt handed to me faster than you can tie a uni knot on one occasion and got lucky with a pup tuna another time. Seriously thrilling stuff though. At one stage during my time there a lure angler hooked and landed a 60kg marlin from the side...I wasn't fortunate enough to witness the fight, but saw the angler and his fish. Since that day I have dreamed of getting one myself...maybe one day if the stars all align^^..
