Pre trip

Before taking that exciting flight it is necessary to prepare correctly. We would suggest to bring at last two 9 to 10wt, 9ft fly rods that will cover most bigger species like giant trevalley, bluefin trevalley, golden trevalley, yellow spotted trevalley, permit, yellowmargine triggerfish, titan triggerfish, barracuda, green humphead parrotfish, like yellowfin tuna, dogtooth tuna, wahoo, mahi-mahi. If going after Indo-Pacific sailfish then 12wt is almost a must have with reel that can hold plenty at least 300 yards of backing. When targeting bonefish and smaller species of trevally like island trevally and picasso (lagoon) triggerfish 9ft 7wt with floating line is adequate.
