Stan, Just wanted to share photo of my fly fishing catch the other day. Both were caught w/ my 8 wt avid fly fishing rod. No fly was needed to catch them.
Not to worry, octopus are more afraid of you than you are of them. Keep your eyes open and watch where you step while bonefishing the flats, these tako make 'good eats'. (Good bait to) I wonder where he put them after they were caught? In his back pack? You could just slap them against your skin... the suction cups stick real good. LOL
