Welcome to the first edition of Tails’n’Scales.
A big thank you to everyone that sent suggestions for the name. It was a hard decision to make, and Bill Martin’s suggestion of ‘Tails’n’Scales’ ended up our favourite. Congratulations Bill – we hope you enjoyed the pack of goodies.
There’s nothing quite as invigorating as that fresh ocean breeze, with your line dangling in the big blue, waiting for that feeling on your fingertips you’ve been dreaming about for months.
In our newsletter this month we bring you up to date on some of the latest trips and specials we have, introduce you to our new series .. Terrin Talks Tackle, and share one of Dylan’s great recipes.
Join us for a trip to Shoalwater Bay and save $270?
There are only 12 spaces left, so be sure to book early so you don’t miss out. Shoalwater Bay is a great location for crabbing, fishing, snorkelling and more, so there’s plenty for everyone.
How to save with our small price rise set for 2020
We have absorbed rising costs for as long as we can, but unfortunately now have to pass on a small increase effective from 1 February 2020. To help offset this, we’re offering discounts for early payment on 7+ day trips, as well as a further 2.0% discount to those that book completely online.
Trips available for 2020
The following are dates we have available for 2020. Some of these dates overlap depending on how long you want your trip to be, so the group that books and pays the deposit will have preference.

The Bimini Twist and attaching monofilament to braid
Welcome to the first in our series of tackle tips from our very own Terrin Sharpe. Join Terrin as he goes over some of the tackle and bait that he finds work really well on the Swain Reefs. This first one looks at the Bimini Twist, and attaching braid to monofilament.
