An epic adventure into
the remote Tuamotu Archipelago of French Polynesia in search of
monster bonefish. Hitch a ride on freighter ships and local fishing
boats to uninhabited islands with Nick Reygaert, Kent Fraser, Craig
Worthington and Mat Mchugh on this compelling voyage of discovery
You have to see this
video of monster bonefish in the backblocks of Tahiti. Nick
Reygaert, one of the principles in and behind this film was involved
in the first two Trout Bums movies, and has led a pretty impressive
effort. It was also neat to see one of the Journal’s fellow writers
Craig Worthington in the film, particularly his work on some huge
Napoleon Wrasse is mindblowing, but then again Craig has been a
leading force in some of the truly ground breaking saltwater fly
fishing discoveries in his home water.

The Search Tahiti from Gin Clear
Media tells the story of a couple of guys in the search for new
Many of us fishermen has during of
season spent hours hoovering over several maps trying to find new
virging waters. These guys did the same and find there Bonefish
paradise in French Polynesia's. They arrived there by plane and last
stretch through freight boat.
The fun thing with this adventure
is that they have no idea if there are any Bonefish in this area.
The whole trip could be a wild goose chase!
The scenery is beautiful and the
film does a great job of showing not just scenes of perfect fishing
but also the hazzle of finding these Bonefish spots in Polynesia's
virgin wilderness. The reality is maintained with multiple breakages
and losses, mainly as a result of the coral "bommies" studding the
Casting in razor sharp coral reafs,
sometimes food and water are almost non-existent, and also attacked
by sharks that simply think of them as food.
This movie leaves you with a big
desire to try this fantastic fishing for Bonefish. Until that comes
true this movie will do as a subsitute.
A nice touch inside the DVD case
for "The Search - Tahiti" is a small booklet of text and pictures
introducing the team of Kent Fraser, Nick Raygeart, Craig
Worthington, Simon Cox and also Matt McHugh of UK based travel firm

from journal entries and general information on the ultimate
