Reef action at Anahola

The time-honored tradition of net fishing is alive and well in Hawaii—and impervious to a bad tourist economy. These guys can spot fish from the shore and then let fly with their lead-laden nets. About a mile of sand and reef stretches from the Anahola Stream to the black rocks of Kahala Point, and then to Aliomanu Bay. On calm days this is an above average snorkeling area with clear pools stretched out along the coral reef.
