Aloha it is oama season here in the islands. Oama are a baby goat fish that hit the inshore sandy beaches here. They are a favorite food of reef predators. I created a fly to mimick them and took a client out on saturday for some inshore action. He was able to get a couple of nice baracuda with the fly. He liked it so much, I gave him some to take on his adventures to the other outer islands to fish.
I had forgotten how well this fly works, so I went out this afternoon and got five baracuda with the same fly. The fly got pretty chewed up, but was still catching fish.
When I came home, I was suprised with a new Rainy's fly catalog. This is an insert section of their fall line up. Inside the insert was my oama fly on display and ready for sale. It is pretty cool to see your own invention out there for sale. If you ever hit the islands, be sure to pick some up for some good fun reef action. Mems.
