The Wessel Islands are one of Australia’s most remote and untouched fly fishing destinations. Nestled at the top of the Northern Territory, the network of coves and clear sandy flats create a fly fisher’s paradise.
The diversity of fish is matched only by the remoteness of the location. The fishery has remained largely untouched and Waterline Charters is the sole operator accessing the pristine island flats via the 115 ft luxury motor yacht, Pheonix One. On the flats it is common for anglers to see two species of Indo-Pacific permit, blue bastards, black spotted tusk fish, various trevally species and more.
The trip offers six days of fly fishing around the Wessel Islands with most travel time on the mother ship scheduled on the first and final day, to maximise fishing time. It is usually only available for intact groups or those joining hosted weeks, but we have several rods available in late April 2020.
