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.

Patagonia Founder Interview

I found this interview with Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard that I really enjoyed. He has a great outlook on business and some really interesting thoughts on the future of his company.

I'm a big fan of Patagonia products. I have a pair of wading boots that I use with my waders and have been really happy with them.

Yvon was also a featured angler on Pirates of the Flats on ESPN2 Saltwater. In my opinion, this was one of the best fishing shows around.

Enjoy the interview.

  1. Yvon is pretty awesome. I got to meet him and hear him talk a few years back. He actually did an interview for me that will go up next Tuesday. I really like Patagonia products too... just solid stuff and a lifetime, yes, LIFETIME warranty on pretty much everything.
