Fish Hunter FNQ

Catering for the experienced angler and fishing on the best river on the east coast of tropical FNQ, this is your lure and fly fishing specialist. Your skipper, Will Pritchard has forged himself a reputation as the best in the business when it comes to this style of fishing. 

We will explore the majestic and expansive Daintree River system on the doorstep to the oldest Rainforest in the world.  Our 5.5 metre Cairns custom craft and purpose built shallow draft, takes you to the places the others don't go. We specialise in lure and fly fishing techniques targeting barramundi, mangrove jack, queenfish, tarpon and trevally.  

All our fishing gear is state of the art rigged with high quality lures, soft plastics, poppers and flies. We provide lunch, snacks and soft beverages as part of the trip. Our skipper has 25 years of commercial and charter fishing experience in the local area and is widely recognised as the best lure guide in FNQ. 

From the freshwater rainforest to the saltwater reaches he knows the riches to be enjoyed of the Daintree River like the back of his hand.
