Designed by Moana Kofe to increase sustainable fishing and catch & release techniques, this hook release has been re-designed with the safety of the fish in mind.
Moana Kofe is the guide who pioneered fly fishing many years ago on Christmas Island. Over the years, he had come to understand the value of a sustainable sport fishery and the need to conserve this valuable resource by the careful release of fish caught by his clients.
Looking to find a method to release sport fish with a minimal amount of contact, he set about designing a simple yet effective tool carefully re-shaping a stainless steel commercial Longline Snap, (the type used in a fishery where millions of by-catch fish are killed and thrown back into the sea) Moana painstakingly crafted his release tool.
The Moana Hook Release is manufactured true to the original and represents a commitment to the conservation of our fisheries.
Very knowledgeable and extremely helpful, super friendly and great variety of product.
They've got anything you could need. It's a huge selection, which is surprising for a small town shop. They're amazing people and Collin can answer any questions you have. His knowledge is impressive.
I recently spent a weekend with a close group of friends fly fishing along with Colin and team - incredible preparation & professionalism, quality camp equipment and fishing gear and just a first class operation overall. I would and highly recommend RMFS to any and all fishing skill levels interested in enjoying themselves on the water. It was a really positive experience for our group.
Congrats to Colin and Tammy on the move to their new location in downtown Olds! The prices are fair, they have a great selection and the shipping is lighting fast. Best sticker offerings I have seen south of Red Deer as a kicker.
I had a fabulous lesson with Jordan from Rocky Mountain Fly Shop. We went out on the water and he tailored the lesson to my experience and skill level. We touched on casting, fly selection and an introduction to reading water. It was all hands on and I walked away with the confidence to try new things this summer. It was a perfect morning and I'll definitely do it again.
