Triggerfish are found in tropical waters around coral bommies, fingers or any coral structures. They are wonderful characterful fish that are so wildly unpredictable. One day you can land a fly on their head and they will crunch it, the next you land a cast 10 yards away and they are running to the hills. If you can work out their nature and find a happy fish, they quickly become the dirtiest fighter in the ocean. Once hooked they are going to make a mad dash for the nearest hole or drop off. If you let them go, then expect to only get half of your line back.

A 9ft 10 weight is your typical weapon of choice when taking on triggers. Your rod will need to be matched with a good quality large arbor saltwater reel. To fight a trigger you need to yield nothing and for that you need a strong rod. Give them an inch and they will take a mile.
Triggerfish flies are typically crab imitations tied on very strong hooks. Triggers have very strong jaws and can happily crunch a cheap hook.
