2. Flyfish

Flyfish is an exhilarating water activity that you must try. The fly fish is being pulled by a speed boat until lifted up to a certain angle it is fun and exciting as it flies and glides into the water almost vertically, you need to grab hold on to the boat so that you will not fall off while the speed boat is running.
