Fishing for sailfish can be wildly exciting as sailies are the fastest fish in the ocean - they have been clocked going as fast as 68 mph. To catch them on the fly is normally done by teasing them up to the surface using a selection of hookless lures and bait which are trawled behind the boat. Once you raise a fish, the quick crew remove the baits and you make your cast. This requires team work and you having the ability to make a quick and accurate cast using a 12 weight rod. Do not fear, it does not have to be a long cast. Your aim is to hit the baits as they are lifted out of the water, with the plan being that the sailfish will swap from the bait to your fly. Once hooked they will fight vigorously and take up to a couple of hours to land.
