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.

Flip Pallot Joins Costa Pro Staff

Well it's about time.  My main man Flip has joined Costa Del Mar's current pro staff.  If you are a regular reader of the Bonefish Flat, you know I'm a huge fan. The Walkers Cay Chronicles is a big reason I'm such an avid saltwater fly fisherman.

Flip won't be squintin' anymore with his new Costas.  

Flip is a great fit for Costa joining such other pro staff members as Chico Fernandez and Jose Wejebe.  He has a new show, Ford's Fishing Frontier which is on the Outdoor Channel.  The new season starts in January.

Maybe Costa will come out with a style of shades called the "Flip."
