Fly fishing the FADs

Dragin Fly just got back from a 3 night/2 day trip to the FADs in attempts to catch a blue marlin on the fly.   Congrats to Capt. Jake Jordan who caught 5 blue marlin and one sailfish on the fly in two days.  His fishing partner Paul caught an impressive grand slam with one blue marlin, one sailfish and one very rare black marlin on the fly in two days of fishing.
The report was that they had 30 hot blue marlin on the transom and never threw anything at them but the fly.   Some refusals, broken lines,  and hot bites yielded an amazing 6 blue marlin, 1 black marlin and 2 sails on the fly in only two days.  

Here are a few pics from the trip, the complete report and video coming from Capt. Jake Jordan.
