Perfect location to fish on your way to Christmas Island!
Front Range Anglers is pleased to offer booking assistance, advice, gear and flies for Hawaii On The Fly, based out of Oahu, Hawaii. Hawaiian bonefish are monsters compared to their cousins in most tropical fisheries. Bonefish in Hawaii average eight pounds, but fish over ten pounds are often caught. Knowing when and where to hunt these beautiful fish is 90% of the battle, and Capt. Mike Hennessy is world renowned for consistently putting his clients in the zone. Front Range Anglers also stocks the Hennessy Cognac Fly Series in the shop.
An average day on the flats will consist of seeing anywhere from 40-100 fish with up to 30 good shots at hooking a trophy bonefish. Accurate casting is more important than long-range bomb casting, so practice a bit before you come across the ocean. This will make your experience more enjoyable and successful!

Capt. Mike Hennessy caught his first striped marlin with his Dad in Cabo San Lucas at the age of 10. Catching that fish shaped his destiny and marlin fever was in his blood. Soon after he was charter fishing in Newport Beach, California on half day and full day boats. Fly fishing in the High Sierras was also a passion that started early in his life and continues today.
Capt. Mike is now based in Oahu, Hawaii where he guides his clients to trophy bonefish and other prize species on the fly. His new 16′ Action Craft Tournament Series flats boat is the key to accessing and targeting Hawaii’s great bonefish. According to Mike, “This boat feels like it is a hover craft floating over the flat in less than 7″ of water and is super stealth.”
Capt. Mike is also tying some of the most progressive and innovative flies on the market, the Cognac series. Developed specifically for bonefish, tarpon and permit, they will give you the best shot at hooking into some of these trophies.
