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.

Bonefish Travel Series: The Black Fly Buff

The flat's are a hot place.  And when we get a chance to get out there and stalk a few bonefish, it's always fun to wear a buff and look like a bandit.  For my birthday earlier this year, I got a great new buff that will really help me to pull off that "stick um up, bonefish" look.

Vaughn Cochran's Black Fly design is super cool, and makes for a really cool buff.  Can't wait to sport this baby on the flats... or wherever I'm fishing.
