Hi OC,

fishes that inhabit guinean waters:
Ladyfish, cubera, spanish mackerel, grouper, jack crevalle, senegalese jack, leerfish, amberjack, drum, needlefish, three species of barracuda, cobia, bonefish, permit, african pompano, giant tarpon, several types of shark, guitar fish, etc
(bonefish and permit are very unusual) I donīt know if snook are there, but with the list above is enough...

Bluefish in the mediterranean are common, I have caught a lot with the fly. Also in the Gibraltar Straits between Europe and Africa and in the Canary Islands, and north west coast of Africa.
