Sydney & Beyond

Sydney Flyfishing with Justin Duggan

Welcome to Sydney Flyfishing Tours, I am very excited to be able to offer you the best Flyfishing and Sportfishing that Sydney can offer. When you step aboard the superb Edgewater 188cc boat you are not just in the hands of a fishing guide, you are in the hands of a total fly and sportfishing enthusiast. I have been working these waters professionally for many years and for a considerable time prior as a passionate amateur. Foaming surface schools of Australian Salmon, Tuna Frenzies and baitballs, huge Jewfish and the incredible fight of one of the world's hardest fighting fish, Yellowtail Kingfish. Sydney has so many angling opportunities, and all set within some of the most breathtaking waters in the world. Jump aboard for an unforgettable experience.
