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.

New Toys for the Skinny Water

Really excited to try out my new Cliff Bugger Box Jr. and my new Rio Bonefish Fly Line.  I've noticed you see a lot of guides using the bugger box.  Everyone from the guys on drift boats to Florida Keys guides seem to be using these things.  I can't wait to load it up with some Bonefish and Tarpon flies.

The Cliff Bugger and the Rio Bonefish line in the Bonefish Flat HQ.

I'm also switching over from the SA Mastery Bonefish line to the Rio Bonefish line.  Why? It's just time to try something different.  SA seems to be headed in the direction of the textured line and I hear mixed reviews on that line.  I haven't tried it out yet so I can't say for sure.  I like the color and look of Rio and what they've put together.

More to come on the new line.

  1. You will love the Rio Bonefish line. I did the switch a couple of years ago. Also look into the Wulff Triangle Taper..another great line.
