Aloha and welcome to Fly Fishing Guides Hawaii. Fly Fishing Guides Hawaii is a Hawaiian owned business, and has been in operation since 2008. We offer a variety of private tours on the island of Oahu to include surf adventures, stand-up paddling, guided fly fishing, circle island tours, spear fishing, hiking, light tackle fishing, and snorkeling. Neighbor island tours are available. We are open seven days a week, and can be reached by phone or e-mail. There are three tour packages you can choose from Half Day Tours, Full Day Tours, and Lessons. Complimentary transportation is provided from Waikiki.
Honolulu Light Tackle Fishing
Light Tackle Fishing is our most popular family tour. Using spinners and rods, we head to our favorite fishing spots to catch island predators. This is an exciting tour as your never know what you will catch!
We will walk the rocky coastline, whipping into the surf in efforts to catch Omilu, Papio, Moana, Nunu, Moi and Roys. These are some of the predator fish in the area. Learn how, when fishing, you may have to reel faster where the water is shallower and slower where the water is deeper. As you fish, your guide will explain where to cast and how to reel over different areas of the reef.
As for the outcome of a caught fish, we have two options - Option 1: Keep the fish. Option 2: Let the fish go. If you choose to keep the fish, we can make arrangements with a local restaurant, your hotel, or favorite chef. If not, we will gladly take the fish home.
Location: Potential fishing locations include the Kaiwi Coastline (Holona Blow Hole) or the areas around Diamond Head. (Areas description details are further noted below).
Equipment and Accessories Provided: Reef Walkers, Spinning Rod, Reel, and Tackle. The equipment we use is top of the line - Penn slammer reels and Penn rod. The basic set up consists of a 12 lb test main line, an egg shot lead, a one way swivel, a 6 lb test leader, and a hook with a grub. This is the basic set up for whipping in Hawaiian waters.
Things to Bring: Sunscreen, Cash (some places accept cash only), Identification, Camera, Towel, Bathing Suite/Trunks, and Sandals or Slippers.
Note: In Hawaii there is no fishing licenses required for such an activity. Honolulu Fly Fishing Fly Fishing for Bonefish
Enjoy wading in Hawaii's shallow waters in a quiet, mystic experience with our Honolulu fly fishing guides. Bonefish, also known as Oio, thrive in the sandy, shallow waters around the island. You can often see their tails waving in the air on low tides as they feed on mantis shrimp, crabs, sand turtles, and squid. Our Honolulu fly fishing guides will help you "match the hatch" (use a fly that closely resembles the fish's natural prey) to land your first Hawaiian Bonefish. Weather a beginner or an experienced angler, let's give you the opportunity to catch these illusive fish!
The flat's depth ranges from 0-4 feet and is easily accessible by foot. You can expect to do a lot a walking over uneven grounds but in the end, if we are lucky, you'll be able to brag to all your friends about the giant Hawaiian bonefish you just caught.
We also recommend keeping groups to a maximum of 3 individuals. However, we will make exceptions for bigger groups. Keep in mind that the bigger groups tend to get less individual attention.
