Ono Fiji puts the G in GT

Welcome to AKFF select.

This is a virtual magazine of some of the best AKFF content produced over the month, with contributions from a variety of AKFF members (that had no idea they were contributing). The aim of AKFF select is to promote the best content to further encourage quality contributions from AKFF members. These select threads will be captured in this monthly magazine style format for the enjoyment of members and guests for all time.

Weather, weather, weather, that's all we've heard from the whiners from the north. Autumn has interupted their seemingly endless bragging about blistering pelagics, monster snapper and jaw dropping jewies. Meanwhile, those of us from the south have bathed in glorious Autumnal sunshine, racking up our own stories of fishing fame and fortune. It was about time for the Queenslander's to exude that tinge of green that we are all too familar with. Then Decay came along and spoilt it for all of us.

In this issue:
