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.

Chicken Fried Flat

Yesterday began in a dramatic fashion. I left my iPhone in my jeans pocket. The same jeans my wife just threw in the wash. I ran down to the washing machine, pulled out my jeans, which of course were on the bottom, and fished out my phone. Miraculously, it hadn't yet gotten wet.

When day's begin like this, you never know what to expect. Turns out, it really did go up from there. My wife gave me the new Zac Brown Band CD for our Anniversary. The Bonefish Flat gives it four stars.

Zac Brown blends Jimmy Buffett, Bob Marley, and Waylon Jennings together to come up with some laid back, island country fusion sounds that are perfect for the car ride to the bonefish flat. The music will get you relaxed and ready for your day to tailing bones in "Chicken Fried" flat. The song "Where the Boat Leaves From" is a country revved island tune that will have your head bobbing. "Whatever it is" will have you missing your wife, provided you didn't bring her along on your trip.

Be sure to check out this CD.

You've got to listen to something on your way fishing, right?
