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.

Inside Scott Fly Rods

You may know that I'm a big fan of Scott Fly Rods. They make my favorite rod, currently the S4S, which I don't have, but I do have an S3S which is just a beaut.

The rod's are handmade in America by craftsmen. That fact has really drawn me to the company and this new video from Felt Sole media really ties this fact altogether, to borrow a phrase from "the Dude."
