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.

Currents of Belize

The issue of growth and sustainability, it turns out, is a global one.  I highly encourage Bonefish Flat readers to check out a new film online sponsored by Costa Del Mar called Currents of Belize.

It can be found here www.currentsofbelize.com 

I had the chance to watch the film this snowy afternoon and it is top notch.  It gives a snapshot of what Belize is dealing with as it tries to provide jobs and improve its tourism industry while at the same time protecting its environment and its integrity.  

Plus, it has great footage of the flats including the big three.  

Anyone who is a fan of flats fishing won't want to miss this.
