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 Fish Truck

Every fisherman needs a fish truck. Mine is a 1999 Toyota Tacoma 4WD with an extended cab. My truck is about the only thing I have left from before getting married and its great for fishing. I've had it for ten years now and it gets better with age.

I've had it in the mountains for trout, at the beach for reds, and just today at the lake for bass. A fish truck needs some stickers on the back to show you're a legit fly fisherman. Mine sports my Uptown Angler sticker, a Scott Fly Rod sticker, Tibor sticker, the Federation of Fly Fishermen, and a Patagucci Permit Sticker.

What's your fish truck?
