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.

Fishy Kid Summer Contest Wrapping Up

It's up to us to make sure that the next generation of kids grows up with a love of the outdoors and a respect for the planet.  What better way to get kids hooked on the outdoors than fishing.  

Fishy Kid has a great outdoor contest that has been going called the "Three Months of Summer" contest and it will be wrapping up at the end of the month.  There are prizes for four categories including saltwater which I know everyone here on the flat will want to take part in.  

I know I'm looking forward to getting my kids out on the water for some quality time.  The guys over at Fishy Kid really have done a great job putting together a fantastic Web site that everyone should use as a resource to engaging young people to develop a love for all things fishy. 


Be sure to submit your photo for a chance to win a great prize from one of these great sponsors.
