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,

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
