The film’s creators hope is that Itu’s Bones will help convert commercial bonefish netters into bonefish guides. Itu’s Bones is the story of bonefish netter Itu Davie’s transition to a sportfishing guide on the island of Aitutaki in the Cook Islands.
Film originator Carl McNeil explained when we talked about supporting the production that his hope was that by teaching Itu to guide, others on the island would follow and no longer net bonefish for income. Aitutaki’s bonefish are some of the biggest in the world and we wanted to help in this effort.
