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.

DIY Flats Fishing

I've had a chance to check out a new Web site on Do-It-Yourself flyfishing called DIY Flats Fishing.  It's a great site that has a lot of good information about DIY locations in the Bahamas.  It also has some great travel checklists out there to get you ready for that next trip.

Flats fishing is a tough game, and DIY on the flats is tough.  I always recommend going out with a guide the first time or two to get your fish eye's going and to help you tune-in your game.  BUT... many folks want to go out on their own and this site will get you going.

Good luck and more on DIY flats fishing to come.
