Welcome to The Bonefish Flat

There's a stiff wind in your face as you squint in the sun trying to see what the guide sees. "Bonefish at 12 o'clock about 90 feet, do you see it, mon?" You don't and keep squinting, your hat pulled low to keep the sun out of your eyes. "Bonefish at 11 o'clock 70 feet out. Come on man, do you see it?" As the guide is calmly shifting the skiff into position, this time you spot the fish, "I got, it," you reply.

"OK, Mon, Bonefish 50 feet at 10 o'clock. Cast when you're ready."

Cast when you're ready. And with that you drop your fly, roll out a cast, false cast once, and then...

Welcome to the bonefish flat.

Costa Employees Walking the Walk

It's always good to hear when companies that have great products also do things to give back in the community. Costa Del Mar is a great example of this.

I heard recently from Costa that their employees helped deploy oyster mats into the Atlantic Ocean in conjunction with the Marine Discovery Center in New Smyrna Beach, Fla. The oyster shells were collected from oysters eaten at the Halifax Oyster Festival held this past March in Daytona Beach.

Costa employees work alongside a local Eagle Scout troop and to deploy oyster mats off the coast of the Atlantic Ocean in Florida recently. Company representatives worked to string together empty oyster shells produced from the first annual Halifax Oyster Festival held in Daytona Beach in March. The oyster mats, once deployed, serve as the ocean’s natural filtration system to clean pollutants from the water.

What a GREAT way to recycle!!

Thanks folks!

So a big thank you to the good folks at Costa Del Mar. Not only do they make the world's best shades, but they step it up when it comes to corporate responsibility.
