Welcome to HI Tide Fly Fishing Co. based out the beautiful island Oahu, Hawaii. Providing next level inshore fly fishing trips. We specialize in shallow water fly fishing on the flats for Bonefish, Golden Trevally, and Giant Trevally or GT.
Oahu, Hawaii is world renowned for its breathtaking beaches, amazing surf breaks and beautiful mountain ranges. However, one thing the most isolated island chain on earth is not well known for is saltwater fly fishing and it’s trophy bonefish. The first thing that comes to mind when fishing in Hawaii is deep sea fishing. The island of Oahu, which means the gathering place, is home to some of the largest bonefish or “‘O’io” (Bonefish in Hawaiian) on earth. We have amazing Bonefish flats on both the eastern side of the island and the southern side that present the visiting fly fishing angler opportunities to wade or pole the Hawaii Bonefish flats in our flats boats designed for fly fishing in search of these elusive giants.
Our Hawaii Bonefish average 3 to 5 pounds consistently, but come prepared for shots at some in the 8 – 10 pound plus range. Additionally, we do have shots at different types of Trevally, including Giant Trevally, or “Ulua;” Blue Trevally, or “Omilu;” and Golden Trevally, or “Pa’o Pa’o” on the flats. Average day with good visibility on the Hawaii Bonefish flats we see 40-100 fish in a day and have excellent shots on about half of them or more. Fly Fishing Conditions on Oahu Hawaii can be challenging like many other saltwater fly fishing destination with strong tradewinds, although we do have many great days with perfect wind and great visibility. For those willing to accept the challenge the returns can easily yield the bonefish of a lifetime!
