Question flyfishing in Kuaii(Hawaii)

My brother in law is headed to Kuaii in a couple of weeks time and wants to take his 8wt along.They don't really care what they catch,they just want to enjoy the area and wet a line.

I have heard that there are some bonefish and trevally available there but don't know any of the details.I could really use some info on the fishing there,including what parts of the island would be best and most accessible to a fly angler.

What species of fish would be available and what flies(sizes,colors?) and techniques(retreives?) would be best for this area?

Also,I am wondering what kind of flylines he should be taking?He has a Airflow multi-tip line with some extra heavier heads as well.Will he also need a clear line?Will he need a shooting head system?

Any info would be greatly appreciated as I am tying some flies for him so I need to get some idea on patterns to tie pretty soon.

Thanks everyone.
