Paul is in Cabo San Lucas on the western coast of Mexico, and has been invited on an exploratory fly fishing trip with around 20 other anglers to Clipperton Island, a remote atoll 1000 miles to the South West. Its a long 3 day trip by boat so the skipper decides to break it up by stopping at the Revillagigedo Islands for to try for some of the numerous games species that live here. As they find the baitfish, the Yellowfin Tuna suddenly show up and the action begins in earnest with several anglers hooking up, including Paul, who has a strong fight with his first ever Wahoo. They continue on to Clipperton arriving in darkness at 5am, but it isn't long before the anglers are into fish again, catching some sizeable Yellowfin Tuna. Another angler on the boat, Steve Abel has an amazing start to his trip by catching a world record Rainbow Runner. Paul then gets a nice Rainbow Runner, which would have been a world record itself if not for Steve's fish, before he hooks up to a powerful Tuna which forces him to leave the mother ship on a skiff to chase it. The fight is in vain though as the fish slips the hook so next up Paul heads off in another skiff trolling teasers behind the boat before covering any interested fish with the fly rod. After catching a small Blackfin Tuna, they head to the reef catching a variety of fish on Popper fly patterns. The following day, Paul goes ashore and sight fishes some lovely Bluefin Trevally ending this amazing adventure in some style.
