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.

WorldANGLING on the Spanish Fly

Will Benson of WorldANGLING will be fishing with Jose Wejebe on this weekend's Spanish Fly TV show.  The show will air at 9:30 on Sunday February 21.

I first heard of Will on Zach Matthew's Itinerant Angler Podcast which can be found here.  I'll be sure to tune in and watch him fish with Jose.  If you can't watch it, be sure to set the DVR.

If I would have known that Will was fishing with Jose, I would have asked him to ask Jose why he doesn't fly fish on the show anymore.  It looks like Jose will be using the long rod with Will, but be sure to tune in and see.

My guess is that guys like Jose and Tom Rowland use the fly rod less and less on TV because sponsors demand that they use there products.  The fly rod and reel companies just can't compete.
