Video: The First Bonefish to be Taken on the Fly in the Middle East?


Over the years, Ray Montoya has posted a bunch of videos about fly-fishing in the Middle East, but this one makes a historical claim. According to Montoya, this video from 2013 shows the first-ever bonefish caught with fly-fishing gear in the Middle East. I have no way to verify the claim, but a quick Google search seems to support Montoya’s assertion. How cool is that? There are several other species on display, as well.
