    The Fishing

    Albany Island in conjunction with CY fishing charters & FishingEarth is offering one of Australia’s best remote flyfishing packages. Albany Island is the very last island adjacent to the east coast mainland of Australia. For those flat Earther’s amongst you the next stop is the ‘edge’. And for the rest of us the next stop is PNG. Although you might have to navigate around some of the worlds most beautiful tropical islands as well as some of the best fishing atolls a fly fisho can imagine. 
    When someone can catch their first blue bastard halfway through a call to a business associate in Canada you know you have stumbled across something incredible.
    I am sure you have already Google Earthed the heck out of ‘Albany Island’ and the area around it. So you know the fishing opportunities are real. For those willing to study the conditions and put in the effort this could be one of the new playgrounds.
    Do not be fooled its no fish farm it’s the Coral Sea and you have to work for your supper! When I say work for your supper what I am saying is that this is a wild fishery that has had little fishing pressure of any type let alone those casting the long wand. We encourage everyone to return the catch. It is not a fish per cast fishery we are not a fish farm.
    Albany Island, which is right smack bang in the middle of some of Australia’s most fishable waters. (go on get back on Google Earth) To the east of the island is the widest point of the Great Barrier Reef the healthiest and most diverse fishery on Earth. Now start looking to the south of the island. Rocky outcrops the Jackey Jackey creek and Escape River.
    It does not matter what direction you look there are deluxe fishing options. As mentioned above the fishing pressure has been minimal. Those that like to stalk their prey this is a location where your fish may have never seen a fly before. A crab pattern that has the wrong coloured legs may have you casting all day with very little success. Study the environment look at what the fish are eating and this fishery will reward you. 
    Now have a look at Albany Island itself.
    It is a location that is perfectly situated to give you that authentic remote location feeling but close enough that you can get there easily in one day from most locations in Australia. In the morning when you are having a freshly brewed cup of coffee looking back at Australia you will understand exactly what I’m talking about.
