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.

ESPN, Home of Pirates of the Flats, Donates to BTT

Since I've been posting about the great work that the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust has been doing, I thought I would share a news release they put out stating that ESPN, which has been airing Pirates of the Flats, has donated $5,000 to BTT research.

Here is the link: Tarpon & Bonefish Trust

Pirates of the Flats continues to be my favorite fishing show on Sunday morning.  Be sure to check it out if you haven't done so.
