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.

Microskiff Podcast

There is a really great podcast up over on Zach Matthew's site, The Itinerant Angler, where Zach interviews Tom Dyll who runs the Web site Microskiff.com.  It's a great site that has everything you'd ever want to know about small skiffs and then some.  Hopefully at some point there will be a small skiff  in my future and this site gives you a lot of insight into the skiff buying, maintenance, possibilities process.

The podcast is a fantastic interview and really gets into the nitty gritty of these boats.  Check it out!
