    Saltwater fly fishing from shore in Fiji

    Guys, has anyone ever ventured to fly fish from shore in Fiji? Perhaps any of the islands around including Australia or NZ might be similar. I have a 9 weight rod and a Hardy Zane no. 3 reel (1,200 feet of backing). Being from Canada, I have never fished a fly rod from shore so I was hoping to have a little excitement in Fiji in January for 2 weeks. What type of flies should I use? Thanks for your input.

    Hi Gary,

    Check with someone at the place you are staying about whether or not you can fly fish from shore. I was there earlier this year and was not allowed to fish from the shore. In some places you can't fish within a certain distance of the shore. So worth checking rather than dragging excess baggage with you

    Cheers
