    Took an old timer out flyfishing yesterday. This guy has been flyfishing everywhere. Had a slow start as he had a few glitches and a lot of refusals, as the fish didn't like any of his fly offerings.

    As soon as he decided to try one of mine, the odds turned in his favor, as every fish he threw on, sucked up the fly. He ended up hooking three fish, broke one off and landed two nice Bones, also hooked a few Barred jacks.

    All in all, a fun and productive learning outing for him, as these fish were some of the largest Bones he has caught in his entire life, so he was stoked.

    Late fall and early winter is considered to be "prime time" for bonefish in Hawaii.

    Good fish, Clay!

    Nice Capt. Clay.

    Pavlovian reaction though. I see the o'io, I start drooling and thinking limu kohu, pa'akai, nioi and green onions.

    Can't remember the last time I saw Pavlovian and Limu Kohu used in the same sentence, classic
