Hawaii Fishing Tales
As you'll see, Hawaii fishing comes in all forms and occurs at so many different places ranging from small mountain streams and reservoirs all the way to some of the most extreme sportfishing in the world. In Hawaii it's more than a sport. For many of us, fishing is a way of life and the way we "came of age" was in a large part tied to the kind of fishing we'd do.
In this site, I've tried to touch on the different forms of fishing that I've participated in but, truthfully, the sum of my experiences are like a speck in relation to all of the fishing "tales" passed on by folks I know.
This section of the website is a collection of some of the experiences passed on by friends and family that we were able to document with an account as well as some photos!
Whatever the venue, I think you'll agree its a love we all share!
