Shaun Francis Maroochydore GreenBack Tailor 60cm

Shaun Francis Maroochydore GreenBack Tailor 60cm Alvey

Shaun Francis, I recently went out off the bags at Maroochydore with my new avley reel I received only this week after waiting patiently for my order. The third cast got me a green back tailor in the muddy water in the surf. You have to love an alvey. I ended up with a catch of three all around 60cm.
