The Wessels

Joshua Hutchins and Thomas Clancy experience the Wessel Islands

by Tuesday, 05 December 2017

Expanding on Joshua Hutchins article The Wessels in FlyLife Magazine issue #90, discover the vast, raw beauty of the Wessel Islands, East Arnhem Land, off the north coast of the Northern Territory, Australia. With wild crocs, eagles diving for mullet and untouched white sandy beaches, the islands’ immersive beauty will quickly lure you in. And then there is the fishing. 

In a single session you could be chasing Giant Trevally, Spanish Mackerel and Queenfish. If you’re casting to a tailing Permit, make sure you ignore the Barramundi, cruising through the mangrove-lined creek mouth. It’s a vending machine of options. After you’ve filled the day with endless nooks and crannies of new opportunities, you can relax on the roof spa of the five star luxury cruiser – Phoenix One. Beer in hand, watching the top-end sunset, with your personal chef preparing your catch for dinner, you couldn’t feel more content.
