Bottom line, come prepared with an assortment of flies in varying weights and colors when fly fishing for bonefish. After all can a fly angler EVER have enough flies 🙂
Fly Fishing for Bonefish can be as technical as you want it to be. There are tides to take into consideration. Wind direction and speed. New tackle requirements and knots to master. Deciphering the nuances and habits of large fish, plus the infamous strip-set that continues to confound trout fly fishermen the world over. Thankfully, on all of our holidays you’re in good hands. Our veteran guides have the skills to find fish, but they also possess the patience needed to walk you through the process from perfecting casts to proper fish handling skills and everything in between. This is the BIGGEST difference in many saltwater fly fishing holidays which results in you having either a fantastic holiday or just a frustrating one. Unless you are a very season saltwater flats angler and by this I mean you have at least done 20 plus trips fishing for Bonefish, you are going to need to rely on professional guides. I have never understood why people are preferred to travel half way around the world and try to fish DIY to save on guides costs, to me it makes no sense. I personally value every minute I spend on the water and wish to maximize the time. I know there are costs involved, but 1 day guided in the right place at the right time and with your guides eyes spotting fish you will catch more than 1 week doing a DIY trip.
ALOHA and welcome to world class bonefishing on the Hawaiian Island of Molokai. Whether you're a seasoned bonefish angler looking for a new adventure, or a trout fisherman who's always dreamed of saltwater fly fishing and sight casting to cruising bonefish on the flats, you've come to the right place.
The beautiful Island of Molokai and the 25-mile long coral reef on the island's southern coast is home to some of the best fly fishing for big bonefish anywhere in the world.
Molokai native resident and guide, Joe Kalima, would be thrilled to introduce you to this special and unique fishery and the large unmatched Pacific bonefish of Molokai.

If you're thinking of checking out the bonefishing in Hawaii, don't book a trip with another outfitter until you've talked with Joe Kalima.
We will be in Oahu in September and my husband would like to have a go at Fly fishing for bonefish. He is a very experienced angler and has fly fished in many places before, but never for Bonefish.
When Fly Fishing for Hawaii Bonefish, the anglers skills must be honed and sharpened. Be sure to practice casting and accuracy. A 60 foot cast must be made with accuracy, in order to get the “eat” from a big Bonefish. Wind is a constant challenge in Hawaii, and other saltwater destinations as well. Practice casting into the wind, not just on calm days. This preparation will come in handy on the trip to Hawaii for big bones!
