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.

The Bonefish Flat Odd's & Ends

If you've signed up to follow us on Facebook, thanks very much. Be sure to suggest the Flat to a friend, or better yet, two friends. Or, sign up to follow me on Google. Or, sign up with your email address to get a daily Bonefish Flat update. I'm working hard to make sure we have daily content, so feel free to recommend the site to your fishing buddies.

In sale news, Tibor is having a sale on t-shirts and the like so hop over to their Web site and pick one up. Sorry, no sale on Everglades Reels or I would have picked one up myself. You can never have too many reels.

Finally, one of the most important things you can do to get ready for your bonefish trip is to get your stomach acclimated to the local cuisine. So to make sure I'm ready to go bonefishing next week, I broke out a tall boy when I was grillin' on Sunday.

Sorry, no Kalik or Sands around here, but you will find Red Stripe in the islands so here you go.
