Your Guide

Jono Shales will be your host in Exmouth

I’m a lifelong fly fisherman, passionate outdoors person and avid caster. A trip with me ensures that guests gain access to a vast array of experience and knowledge on all aspects of saltwater fly fishing, fly tying, knots, techniques for various species and advanced fly casting.

Over the past 10 years I’ve guided hundreds of clients onto some of the best fish of their lives. My occassional days off are spent out on the water as my passion for fishing is still as strong as ever. I look forward to welcoming you to Exmouth and taking you fishing.

The boat has been custom designed and built specifically for fly fishing

She’s a 6m (20ft) centre console by Galeforce Boats in Queensland, powered by a 140 Suzuki 4 stroke. There’s safe rod storage for multiple fly rods, plenty of space for gear and two uncluttered casting platforms, allowing both anglers to fly fish.

Once on the flats, a bow mounted electric motor allows us to silently stalk fish in the shallows.

Exmouth and Ningaloo have been firmly placed on the international fly fishing destination map

Exmouth Fly Fishing was formed in 2010 by Jono Shales, who has opened the door to a vast array of species available, spending thousands of hours exploring and mastering the techniques, tides and best times to fish.  It’s literally a fly fishing smorgasbord. 

The more time you have to enjoy all of this, the better your chances are of targeting trophy fish and enjoying some world-class fishing while learning everything there is to know about saltwater fly fishing.

The business also has its own private and exclusive guest house specifically fitted out for travelling anglers.
