Bonefishing in Yemen

For years I've been looking at the Island of Socotra off the coast of Yemen wondering about the possibility of bonefish. My mate Kamal and I traveled to Socotra in late March in search of this elusive flats-dwelling species. It took most of our ten days on the island to finally crack them, but we did it. The question remains, are we the first fishermen to catch bonefish on the fly in Yemen? I think so.

I knew they are there.... Big step forward. Congratulations & thanks to the explorers. Much appreciated. The threadfins are an interesting target as well. In the near future I will go there. Not too far form Muscat, as you stated.
Fish on,
