Steve Starling then joins the crew of a charter boat off Eco Beach, south of Broome on the other side of the country, to chase a few Spaniards and shark mackerel on trolled hard-body lures.

Discovering new waters to fish is among the pinnacles of the fly fishing experience, and this saltwater flats fishery, Golden Bay, is just such a gem. Kingfish have a unique relationship with short-tailed stingrays, which they use as mobile cover, allowing them to ambush unsuspecting bait fish, earning them the name 'Ray-riders.' In this episode, local fishing guide Anton Donaldson is proud to share this amazing fishery, which he had a hand in discovering, with Fish and Game NZ representative, Julian Danby.

Threadfin salmon are amongst the most exciting, spectacular and unpredictable sportfishing targets encountered in tropical and sub-tropical inshore waters.
