Fly fishing Guam

#1
It seems like there isn't a whole lot of information available. I am going to Guam for xmas with my gf. I was curious if anybody has had any experience fly fishing here. I know there are rivers, estuary water, a few lakes, and the salt. Have heard Guam has large catfish in rivers, peacock bass, etc. Wondering if anybody has any knowledge or experience. Also pretty darn new to fishing tropical salt water. I was thinking of bringing my 8wt to try from the shore. I have a bonefish line, if you had to choose one other line to bring for deeper stuff and drop offs from reefs, what would it be? Full sink? Some kind of grain line (not too familiar with that)? Any help would be great, direct messages are appreciated.

I spent quite a few days on crew rests at Anderson AB while in the Air Force, but never fly fished there. Most of our time was spent lounging around the pool and in the pool's Tahiti Bar - we always seems lucky enough to get off base quarters. I do recall folks saying that if we played in the local beaches to wear tennis shoes to protect against coral and stonefish.

I know nothing of the fishing there, but for a sinking line for your 8 wt, you might consider a good ol’ 300 grain Streamer Express.

It may sound like a stupid question, but I know nothing about grain lines. Is a 300 grain streamer express a specific model? And can you tell me what the sink rate is for a line like that? Also, thank you for sending a message.

Yeah it’s a line “model” by scientific anglers that comes in different weights. I think the 250 or 300 grain lines would be a good starting point for an 8 wt. The sink rate is fast.
