Liveaboard fishing operations are unique; there is something very special about spending a week on a boat. As you step aboard, you leave your normal world behind. For the next week, life revolves around nothing but tides, tactics, fishing tackle, camaraderie, serious fly fishing. At days end, you have stunning sunsets and starry skies. A few hours to do nothing more than listen to music, eat, drink and talk about fishing. Not much can beat being rocked to sleep with the sound of waves on the hull.
