Gaffney to speak on sportfishing


Captain Rick Gaffney will present “A History of the Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament and Sportfishing in Hawaii” from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesday in Council Chambers, Building A, at the West Hawaii Civic Center.

Gaffney will connect precontact Hawaiian game fishing to modern sportfishing practices during his Kona Historical Society 2013 Hanohano o Kona Lecture Series presentation.

Hanohano o Kona is partially funded by the Hawaii Council for the Humanities. Programs are free and open to the public. August’s lecture will spotlight the Polynesian Voyaging Society. For more information, call 323-3222 or visit konahistorical.org.
