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.

Three in a Row

Ok, so three in a row on conservation. This one is on river close to where I live, and close to the nation's capital, so it is a must read. According to the Washington Post, the Potomac is "toxic stew" with problems related to runoff and hormones in the water (the hormones are from birth control which gets into the water, well, you can figure it out).

The hormones are thought to be one of the reasons that male bass are having eggs. More importantly, it is unknown what this toxic stew will do to people since the Potomac is the major source of drinking water for the Washington DC area.

Be sure to read this article.
