Giant Trevally about:


Whilst bonefish were our principal prey, it quickly became apparent that Giant Trevally (GTs) cruised the atoll on most day searching for their dinner.  Now this apex predator has a reputation of being an aggressive, which apparently spooks at nothing.  And whilst they do appear quite menacing these creatures are highly sensitive when it comes to tempting them on fly.  Don’t get me wrong, there are times when they seem suicidal, but equally, if anything can go wrong when hunting these beasties, trust me…it will….
