6 Metreys in 2 Days! The 2024 run-off is going nuts at Dhipirri

The BIG Dhipirri Barra are playing ball at Dhipirri right now.

And to show off the impact a big wet (so far) has had on The Glyde – SIX Metreys were caught this week!

On Thursday and Friday this week (18th and 19th April), we had SIX Metreys caught by five anglers… yep, Hilly got two on the same day!

Welcome to the Metre Club to these legends:

Rod Duncombe 100

Brian ‘Nutty’ Nutt 100

Jacob Rodrigues 101

Paul ‘Lumpty’ Lumtin 102

Stephen ‘Hilly’ Hill 100 and 102

With the Arafura Swamp flushed with freshwater, The Glyde is delivering with LARGE Dhipirri Barra taking a lot of interest in our client’s lures… what the next two or three months holds at Dhipirri is seriously exciting to contemplate.
