I’m heading to the Hawaiian Island of Oahu mid-October. I hear there is bonefishing flats available and was wondering if anyone has been there.
thanks to a few members on this board, I might just have a new fly rod to bring with me too....

Oahu is on my destination list and based on my research I'd highly recommend booking a trip with Coach Duff. Stellar reputation a trophy bonefish guide who can not only help you with your cast, but put you on world class fish. Nervous Waters is the local fly shop and they should be able to get you pointed in the right direction. Enjoy the adventure!

heres who I fished with and the Bonefish where huge! honestly I fished on the same flat as coach duff and his clients so i guess its all the same. Mike was cool though, funny with a great sense of humor...

and don't forget "Louie the fish" the Best Oahu SHORE guide that shows you the hidden spots (and where to park) so you can fish them on your own the following days and trips,,, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJNhmsidd00
also while your there contact this guy and do some Peacock Bass with a fly rod up at wilson lake for a day, <snip>
not sure about nervous water but have not heard anything bad.
Please follow site policies on direct business links - thanks
Herb says the blanks will be shipped this week, slight delay due to late order by Mike O.
As for your trip to Hawaii, we all hate you, but if you catch a fish we won't begrudge it.;-)
