Measuring 1050km in length, the Fly River is the 25th largest in the world by volume of discharge. Flowing from the rugged Star mountains, crossing the south-western low lands of the Western Province before discharging in the Gulf of Papua in a large delta. The estuary of the Fly River is 56km wide at the entrance, and only 11km wide at Kiwai Island, which many consider the mouth of the river. Upstream, the river gradually contracts to a width of 1.6km or less.
Getting on a private charter flight into the heartland of middle Fly River you’ll experience the local culture as you’re welcomed into remote communities by a sea of colour in traditional dancing and gain a fascinating insight into the daily life of local communities living off the land and the river. The Fly River is surrounded by massive unspoiled flood plains creating a seemingly endless food source for the local fish population, Barramundi, Saratoga and other acrobatic fish. Expect the unexpected and join us on a journey to the last frontier.

Black Bass, I have a cousin that every fish he misses is a big barramundi. You know when you have missed a PNG Black Bass as you feel like you have been hit by Jonah Lomu as he races down the sideline… PNG Black Bass are big and powerful and will test your gear and knots like never before.
Barramundi, For some reason PNG is not famous for its Barra fishing and it should be! They are not in the numbers that you might find from time to time in the NT and QLD but they are big and fight hard.
