Chris at the fly tying bench

Chris ties the vast majority of the flies that he and Will use. The Pink Thing, Barra Rattle Rouser and simple Clouser have proven to be the most effective flies in the Top End. While the target species is usually barramundi these three flies have proven themselves time and time again catching everything from tarpon to queenfish.

While filming Billabongs to Beaches Tony struck on the brilliant idea of combining the principles of the Barra Rattle Rouser and the Pink Thing, by tying a Pink Thing with a rattle. That night the Pink Thing Rattle Rouser was born. Needless to say it proved to be a very effective fly and accounted for in excess of 90 barra the next day on the Pentecost River.
