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.

Join Bonefish & Tarpon Trust: Win Free Swag

For fun last week I gave The Bonefish Flat state of the union, but the real truth is that we need to know more about the real state of the bonefish, tarpon, permit and all the other fish that swim the flats.

If you caught my interview with Dr. Aaron Adams a few months back, you know that much more work needs to be done to research these great fish.

That's why it's important to join the Bonefish and Tarpon Trust.  You'll help fund critical bonefish, tarpon, and permit research to help us learn more so we can protect these fish.  To sweeten the deal, BTT is offering a free monthly give away.  This month it's from Howler Brothers.

Now, you can join at the $50 level and get cool prizes including a chance to win a grand prize of a 3 day trip to the Ascension Bay Bonefish Club.  Renew or join at the $100 level and get a chance for a 6 day 7 night adventure to Pesca Maya Bonefish Lodge.  

I was looking through some old pictures last night and thought it would be a shame if my daughter and son never had a chance to catch a bonefish.  Let's join BTT and make sure the fish of the flats are around for the next generation.
