Tackle & Technique
Whatever you hook into, rest assured that it will peel backing/line of both spinning and flyreels in no time. The good old saying “fail to prepare or prepare to fail” has something to it, especially if the quarry consists out of some of the meanest, fastest and most aggressive fish that the inshores have to offer. Good gear is very subjective, so we ask you to bring functional gear that works for you and suits the mission. Throughout the whole Giant Trevally Expedition from Indonesia over New Caledonia and ultimately the Lakshadweep area we have witnessed 1000 dollar reels blowing up, fantastic rods loaded with the wrong line, lines, leaders flies…you name it – disintegrating to their last quarks. Here some general guidelines and recommendations. More importantly – especially for the fly fishing part – give yourself some time prior to the trip to try the gear and get used to it. Guests are responsible for bringing their own equipment or pre-booking their own rentals. We recommend to bring gear that can hold up for GT, Snapper, Tuna, and such bigger fish but also something lighter for Bonitos and more.
