People often forget that some of the country’s best and most wonderful fishing is available right in the middle of our biggest, most populated, pumping metropolis. It is often hard to think of cloud reaching skyscrapers and 50kg Yellowtail Kingfish in the same thought. But I guess there are a lot of Australians that don’t realise that you can hook into Kingfish of record breaking Kingies while you’re staring at the Opera House. A short trip up the road will bring you to one of Australia’s most spectacular water ways, the Hawkesbury River. It is devastatingly beautiful and absolutely teaming with fish. You can land yourself a Mulloway on a live Squid that will be feeding the family for weeks.
In fact Sydney and the Hawkesbury offer such a prolific selection of fishing opportunities you really could fish it for a lifetime and barely scratch the surface. There are saltwater and fresh water opportunities. You can fish amidst the high-rise or find the most secluded little stream and feel you are completely alone. To get the best out of the Sydney and Hawkesbury you should arm yourself with an informative map, and the best of these bar none is the AFN Fishing Guide to Sydney-Hawkesbury. So vast are there waterways so numerous the locations and so abundant the fish one can barely begin to know where to start. Before you even launch a boat there are truly spectacular land based fishing havens where you could hit a sandy beach and bag out on some Whiting or hit the ocean Rocks and feed your land based game addiction on Marlin, Sailfish or Blue Fin Tuna.
And when you do get in the Boat, the shelf is just a stones throw away. And here, the sky is the limit. When people think about Australia’s best fishing, they think The Northern Territory, the Great Barrier Reef. Truth is, it may well be surrounding the nation’s most populous city.
