With early retirement beckonning I'm now starting to think seriously about all those other places I want to visit and fish. And Western Australia's been on my list for a long time.
I'd appreciate a local's view though on what's currently happening with the imposition of the 'Green Zones'. It sounds like bureaucracy gone completely mad? But it's easy to get a somewhat biased view from forums and angling magazines. I understand that much of the Rowley Shoals and Montabello Islands are now off limits for any form of fishing, but that now they're considering a similar ban on the Ningaloo Reef off Exmouth.
Nice looking fish mate, I was in Perth for about 9 months a few years ago and never caught or even saw anything like that, so well done to you, heres a picture for you of a New Zealand snapper

Cliffh...I will be in Perth for December and January mate...whats about then ?
Will be bringing some gear with me..beach, boat, fly and lure and fishing all the way from Margaret River to Geraldton.
Want to get one of those stingers that swim round woodman point this time...got smashed to bits last year.
Will be fishing out of Hillary's with Blue Juice Charters and hopefully Trevor the Mighty Midget will be about to skipper.
I found a few reasonable tackle stores over there with the best being Scarborough way or there was a good one at Rockingham...any recomendations ? I am staying in the Canning Vale area but will have transport.
