I never knew people practised fly fishing in Malta! What species do you target Simon? Garfish?

we targer bass, barracuda, amberjacks, sawrell, garfish, strill and sometimes mullet and xilep from shore.
out with the boat it works well for lampuki, tunnagg, tumbrell, fanfri and imsell tal imperjal

Dear Simon

I have just posted a question regarding fly fishing in Malta on the forum and then read your comments.
I flyfish in england regularly for trout but come to Malta yearly. I would love to try flyfishing for Lampuka. Any advice on tackle and tactics

Regards

yes for lampuki the best is to get on a boat and head towards the tuna farms outside st pauls bay the best lure i found are poppers as it bounces on the surface they usually come up, i use a slow sinking line and cast out about 40ft, as a tippet i use fluorocarbon about 25lb as the lampuki get big.
my rod action is a 7-9
(you can also catch some lampuki from land in certain places or go for a trip with chris fishing mania )
