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.

Connect with Confluence

Just got a clip of the new Confluence Film movie Connect.  This thing is gonna be off the hook.  Drift was the first film from Confluence and I really believe that this movie helped to change how we watch new school fly fishing films.

Here's a preview of the film.

The film is another collaboration between director/cinematographer Chris Patterson and executive producer Jim Klug and features several vignettes from different exotic locations around the world.  One features Greg Vincent in Cuba and should satisfy your salty cravings.

Connect will debut October 7 in Bozeman, Montana at the Ellen Theater in a VIP event for retailers, media, guides, and outfitters.  The rest of us get a shot to see it on October 8 and 9.  Beginning November 4, 2011, it will be available for purchase for $29.95 on DVD and $39.95 on blu-ray at fly shops or online at Confluence.

Sponsors of Connect include Simms, Costa, Yellow Dog Fly Fishing, and Hatch Fly Reels.
