Nathan Richards, 113cm, Kinchant Dam, Mackay, Queensland 15/11/2013

We would like to welcome Nathan Richards to One Metre Barra Club with this solid 113cm Barramundi from Kinchant Dam. Nathan or “Affie” as he is called had been chasing fresh water barra for at least  18 months with not much luck.  But when he did finally connect to his first ever fresh water barra it was one that topped the magic metre mark. Nathan said “I nearly lost this fish four times as it weeded me but when landed it was one of my happiest fishing days ever!” Congrats to you Affie and again welcome to OMBC. Just as a side note Nathan and his fishing mate Dylan “Matty” Matthews have a website where they journal their fishing exploits.  These two ex South Africans who now call Mackay home like to fish hard and enjoy life. So drop on by and take a look.

Tackle used
Diawa Sol 2500 Reel, Daiwa Sol Rod 701 MLFS, 15lb Fins Braid, Rapala
