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.

Bahamas Bonefishing with Brian O'Keefe

Brian O'Keefe is one of my favorite fly fishing personalities and is one of the most well known fly fishing photographers out there.  I'm posting a link to a podcast he did on Ask About Fly Fishing a few years ago about fly fishing for bonefish in the Bahamas.  He gives a great overview of the fishery and some of the things to expect on a trip there.

Here is a link to the podcast

There is also podcast on there about fly fishing in Campeche, Mexico, for baby tarpon and that is worth checking out, too.
