Had some fun with the light flyrods while we were at our place in Kona recently...good times catch-and-releasing some cool species on crustacean and marine worm flies of various types and sizes....

freakin' nenue gave me a nice puncture wound on my finger with his spikes, then spiked my foot as I was releasing him! Oh well...that's fishing. I'll take a spike wound any day to tangle with another of those guys. GREAT battle on the light gear!

Howzit Mingo,
Personally, I think pound for pound, the E'nenue put up a better fight than a Papio of the same size. They seem to have more stamina.
As for the pokes from the E'nenue, watch out for the Po'paa(your last pic) also. The dorsal fin on that guy can get you.

Nice catches on a fly rod no matter what. Great sense of accomplishment catching a few fish on your homemade flies...!!
Mahalos,

Mahalos,
Thanks! I love chasing the smaller stuff with flyrods...the big stuff too! I agree about the fight of the E'nenue. Very very strong fish. That thing really gave me an awesome fight on the flyrod. It ran left into rocks, out to open water..a great surprise. I released him but I hear they make decent poke?

All good things must come to an end, but life is good…..I had to get back to work and Seattletude. AND some local fishing. I thought you guys might appreciate some shots of searun cutthroat trout and salmon my buddy Mark and I caught near Port Ludlow…….

Hey Mingo, what's the trick to sizing the pics correctly? I'm losing 1/3 of my picture whenever I upload. :(

I'm not sure how others had to do it, but for me, I had to reduce them all to no more than about 600 x 700 pixels BEFORE I uploaded them to my photobucket account. Once I did that they all loaded up and were visible in my post, but I had to play around a bit before I figured that out (and tossed out several F bombs when part of the shots got cut off!).

By the way, that surge wrasse is awesome ! Nice moi too!

Thanks Mingo! One of these days I'm gonna get me a fly rod and try it out. It looks like a lot of fun!

Hi guys, coming into Summer over here and the Big Eye Trevally make their way into the rivers to feed on shrimp and small baitfish.

Great fun on 6lb Braid and small surface and sub surface lures, cheers wayneImage
