Orvis-Endorsed Fly-Fishing Guide in Waipahu, HI

Overview

I specialize in flats fishing on the island of Oahu, HI. We fish a combination of walk wade fishing and fishing from my 16ft Action Craft. Challenging trophy bonefish are what HI is known for and opportunities at catching 10+ pound fish are why we do what we do. I cater to both novice and experienced anglers. Whether it's a hard core fishing trip or adding a day of fishing to your vacation, I customize the day(s) to your needs.
