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.

Tom's Tarpon

I just ran across this video from my friends at WorldANGLING and it is off the hook. Will Benson and his crew have really redefined the fly fishing film genre for saltwater fly fishing. Tom Bie of The Drake fame is going after his first big poon. Be sure to watch this and watch the fish charge and take the fly next to the boat.

I've gotta catch a tarpon.
