Profile - Kimberley Barramundi Sportfishing Tours


letter In a world where wilderness is precious and sportfishing frontiers are few, Australia's remote north Kimberley coast is a shining example of both. On the outer edge of this frontier is the fish-rich Admiralty Gulf. And on its eastern side, guarded by time forgotten sandstone ramparts, is One Tree Beach fishing Camp.

One Tree Beach fishing camp is tucked away in total seclusion with panoramic views of Admiralty Gulf and Mitchell Plateau. Fantastic fishing begins right at the water's edge of One Tree Beach. Among the plethora of game species in Admiralty Gulf are barramundi, mulloway (black jew) threadfin salmon, Spanish mackerel, mangrove jack, fingermark (golden snapper) giant trevally, golden trevally, cobia, queen fish, tuna and shark. Thumping blue bone, cod, emperor, coral trout and snapper are just a fresh bait away.

Established in Admiralty Gulf in 1991 as a dedicated sportfishing operation, Robert Vaughan's Kimberley Fishing has fine-tuned the logistics of fly in/fly out sportfishing safaris utilising floatplanes and helicopters. Guiding expertise is in the field of tropical sportfishing, specialising in lure casting, salt water fly fishing and the gathering and rigging of natural baits.

Admiralty Gulf is a huge body of water offering anglers a wide range of spectacular marine environments to fish in. These include big tidal rivers, vast mangrove systems, countless creeks, jutting headlands, crystalline flats and an archipelago of tropical islands and coral reefs.

The Kimberley coast is home to the biggest tides in the southern hemisphere. The single most important factor for successful fishing in the Kimberley is knowing the tides. After twenty five years of intense discovery, Robert Vaughan's Kimberley Fishing has compiled a treasure trove of local knowledge about Admiralty Gulf, its tidal vagaries and its piscatorial secrets. Which is why all fishing tours are scheduled according to known prime fishing tides. In short we know the when and the where.
