    I have a yearning to catch a decent GT on fly (then again, I would probably die of heart-attack if that ever happened) and to name but a few, I would love a Golden Dorado and a yellowfish

    I voted GT because it's been an obession for me since I got ****ed up by one a few years back, but Bonies and Tarpon are also on the list of "wants" with my last BIG desire to get a Tuna on fly.

    Also known as Greater Pompano or Indian Ocean Pompano (I think), a mate picked a big(ish) one up while casting to what he thought was a GT, he reckons they put up a hell of a fight.

    From what I have seen ... probably Triggers or those Humpback/head Parrots

    Yip, I believe they are the cousin of the atlantic permit Trachinotus falcatus caught in the states. On the Southern Oman coastline, they are in abundance and are regularly caught. Have a look at this chaps blog - he has caught 6 in the last 2 months - such stunning looking fish.....http://notemapez.tumblr.com/
