Talking to Bonze about rigging for marlin

Our north island road trip with young Flyn Jack (@Flyn Jack Fishing) had us dropping in to see the legendary Bonze (Bonze Lures) for some expert advice on rigging for marlin. Bonze is world famous as a true expert in his field, and if you want advice on how to catch marlin, Bonze is well worth listening to. It was so great to see such a busy man take the time out of his day to help out Flyn, and he gave us some great advice about setting up the boat, which eventually turned out to be very valuable, with Flyn landing his first marlin. It's pretty rough and ready, but I ran the camera to grab some of this advice as Bonze talked to Flyn, so take a look and you might pick up some tips.

Here’s a quick vid taken on my phone by my mate Lloyd, after a brilliant morning session on the kayak.
