The fishing is excellent around Amok Island..



Perth was super lucky when Amok Island, leaving his hometown of Amsterdam to travel the world, arrived here in WA six years ago.. a lover of all things marine what better place to settle for a while and take in all that our incredible coastline has to offer, of course we benefit from this decision also :)  Amok Island's large scale sea creatures can be seen not only around the city but in outback towns also. Above in a Mt Lawley lane-way 'Cephalopholis Urodeta'.. below, fittingly commissioned by Kailis Bros. Leederville (fish market/cafe) on one wall Frog Fish 'Histrio Histrio' and on another 'Barracuda'. If you live in the Netherlands, Portugal, Greece or Japan just to name a few, you might have already seen an Amok Island, I think you would remember it!  Hope your week has started well, happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe.. p.s. Bills Diving has a new post!
