A similar approach to giant trevally fly choice can be taken as with big barracuda. The fly choice should be dictated by the area you are fishing and the bait species that inhabit that locality. Brush flies, sempers and poppers are all effective. As a general rule, lighter coloured flies should be used on the white sand e.g. tan and white, as these lighter colours are more representative of species such as mullet, small trevally and bream. Darker coloured patterns are more suitable for surf areas and coral fingers e.g. red, black, and brown, making a realistic impression of various types of reef dwellers, grouper, snapper and emperors.
Here are 3 flies that will always be in our guides’ boxes.
