    Default Aitutaki - Cook Islands

    So, I found out that I'll be attending a rather exclusive wedding on this here island in March next year.
    Long time to go still, however, I have jack experience when it comes to this sort of fishing.

    Has anyone ever been to the Cook Islands that can offer any info?
    I've done some research on the web, and it appears that there is some pretty decent fishing on the flats for Bonefish.

    What sort of flies will I need to start tying for this?
    Recommended outfits? I was thinking no less than a #10?

    Here are some immages from my good friend Mr Google:












    Seems like there are bones, trevally and triggers most of the year round!
    Lots of flats fishing.

    Any info will be great.

    Walk the flats on the lows, work the ridges/ledges on the push.

    IF there are fish to be caught, you will find them there.

    Remember good shoes ... coral destroys boots and whatever you do, don't take neoprene booties with hard soles ... make sure you wear proper boots with ankle support.
