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.

New Fiction Involving Bonefish and the Florida Keys

I came across this book review in the New York Times talking about a book by James Hall titled Silencer.  I've never read any of his stuff before, but for those of you who like to mix fishing with reading, this could be worth checking out.

If any of you have read any of Hall's books, be sure to leave a comment below on which one's are the best.
