    Clay, over at Nervous Water, told me our bud and Sims rep, John Sherman was in town recently and had a pretty epic trip to Hawaii. He fished a couple of days on Molokai with Capt. Clay Ching and, in addition to some bones, got a white ulua (giant trevally) on his bonefish setup. Way to go man! That’s like the Holy Grail of fly fishing in Hawaii. So far as Clay knows, there have only been a few g.t.’s that have been hooked and landed on a fly here and John’s may just be the biggest yet.

    Clay said after that, he and Sean spent this past Friday out on K-bay and John annihilated that place too. According to Sean, there were more bones out there that day than there has been in a long time. John ended up getting three out of five, and went one for two with fish in the ten pound region.

    In addition to being a great guy and a flat out ridiculous fly fisherman, John's apparently got the mega fish juj as well (one of the deadliest combinations known to mankind).
    You said it Clay. Thanks for the report.
    Aloha,
    Stan

    Sean & Clay deserve all the credit... they did a super job with the photos. Thanks to them, we all get to share John's adventure.

    They say that Hawaii is a quality, not a quantity bonefish place. Say as compared to Christmas Island. I don't see how that big GT wanted to eat a small bonefish fly... and how John was able to land it. John is an amazing photographer who travels and fly fishes all over the world. If you want to see some beautiful pictures just visit his web site. John Sherman.

    When we fished together a few years ago they were still testing the Sage smallmouth and bluegill rods. He spent more time taking pictures than fishing LOL He's also in that CD... BASS, The Movie. Amazing guy.
