Recipe

Join Clarke Gayford as he heads to Volivoli Beach Resort in Fiji. Located at the northern-most point of Viti Levu, Volivoli is Clarke’s gateway to dive and fish the legendary Bligh Straights. The resort has had a tough last few years with COVID and a succession of tropical cyclones, but the Darling family who own the resort have continued on providing jobs for locals and giving divers from all over the world access to what is considered Fiji’s best diving.   Arriving at the resort Clarke is whisked away to the outer reefs to dive and then troll for dinner on the way home.   But before he can catch his fish of the day he attempts to land some of the area’s giant dogtooth tuna and has an afternoon he’d rather forget.
