So the wife and I honeymooned on Maui 2 years ago. We're going back for our 2nd anniversary in September but will stay on Oahu for 4 days to visit my step-daughter and her husband . The daughter serves in the Navy over there. Then after the stay on Oahu we'll fly to Kauai for 5 days and I've never been to that island. Although I was a gear/bait fisherman for a lot of years, about a year ago, after a 35-year hiatus, I started getting back into fly tossing and have had fun fishing for SRC in Puget Sound and trout in some local lakes. So I'm thinkin' I want to fish over there. I've been using the search function here on WFF and it seems like fly fishing isn't a big sport there but folks who've tried it have had fun. I just want to prowl the beaches and sight cast to the various reef fish. So would an 8 wt. suffice? Floater or sinker or what? And from what I've seen on the web, clousers, bait-fish patterns and poppers might work well? What sizes should I tie? From what I've read, Mingo is the "go-to-guy" about fly fishin' in the Hawaiian Islands so if he'd chime in here I'd appreciate it. Oh, additionally, what's the best way to transport gear? TIA!
