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.

Flip Pallot Joins TFO Fly Rods

As most of The Bonefish Flat readers know, my favorite fly fishing personality is Flip Pallot. Walkers Cay Chronicles was a fantastic show and I wish it was still around. Most of the shows today don't focus on fly fishing anymore, just on bait casting.

Flip was different. His show incorporated great writing and profound insight on fishing. He usually used a fly rod and you could tell that fly fishing was his passion.

I saw this weekend that Flip has joined TFO fly rods. These rods are worth a look.

I have never cast one, but they are manufactured overseas so they can build a rod that costs significantly less than those built here. Check out the TFO site here for more information.

Lefty Kreh has been with TFO for some time now so you know that's a good thing.
