Videos--John Llanes, Fisherman par excellence!

 Raised on the Big Island of Hawaii, John Llances, the co-owner of Makaira is a fisherman, par excellence.


In fact, one of Makaira's claims to fame is John's skill as a fisherman. 


When I told Allan Gortan of Paradise Taveuni that I was going to Makaira, Allan chimed in that not only was John the best fisherman in northern Fiji but that he excells as a chef to boot. 

That sentiment was echoed by the Fijians standing close by.  On the taxi ride north, the taxi driver volunteered, when I told him to drive me to Makaira, that John was a "fantastic fisherman" and he asked me if I was going to Makaira to fish.

My response was perhaps a bit tepid.  As I mentioned in an earlier posting, I grew up in fishing country--some of the best in California.  However, my passion lies more in shooting fish with a video camera.

That said, I really do appreciate watching a skilled fisherman bring in the big ones.  As as you'll see in these videos.  There are no shortage of big fish in the waters off of Taveuni.

John is the man! I hope to get my dad to Fiji this year to go fishing with John.
