Who wants to eat my fly?
I’ve been fly fishing for bonefish the past couple of weeks, with no success. I have gotten much better at spotting fish. I’ve had a few fish stop to investigate, but for the most part they either spook or seem to ignore my fly all together.
To be fair, I have been strictly sight-fishing, which is tough in Hawaii. Blind-casting is definitely the most effective method of hooking bonefish but it’s just not as thrilling to me. Besides, if I’m going to stand around and throw a fly as far as I can (and that’s not even very far) over and over I may as well save my rotator cuff and fish with bait.
In fact, I might just do that tomorrow…
