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.

Bonefish Fly Tying Series: Hot Legs Gotcha

Here's a new bonefish fly for your weekend. It's called the Hot Legs Gotcha and is, surprise surprise, a variation on the Gotcha. The fly uses "bunny" instead of craft fur for a wing and it uses sili legs for a tail.

This is my favorite bonefish fly and it is my go to fly in the Bahamas.

I hope everyone has a great fish filled weekend and enjoys the video. 78 degrees on Andros Island tomorrow. Perfect bonefishing weather. Wish I was there!!
