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.

FIB Fest 2011

Deneki Fly Fishing lodges, which owns and operates four fishing lodges across the world, is currently holding the Fishing Industry Bloggers (FIB, pretty fitting acronym for a bunch of fisherman, huh!!) festival at its property on Andros Island in the Bahamas. It looks to be a great event with several of the leading fly fishing bloggers getting together to fish, chat, and post all of the excitement on twitter, facebook, and yes, the good ole' blog. 

Learn more about the event and participants, including our friend Bjorn over at bonefishonthebrain.com, here

  The FIB Fest office for the next week. 

Bonefishonthebrain pointed out this great bonefish photo from one of the participants blogs, MichaelGracie.com so be sure to check it out.  It'll give you a good laugh. 

It sounds like the folks are catching lots of bonefish and are in possession of plenty of cold Kalik so unless you're on the flats this week, lets sit back and live vicariously through the Fibbers.

  1. Thanks for the props. A good time is certainly being had! Tough light and wind today, but still managed a couple nice bones.
