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.

Podcast on Orvis News with Brian O'Keefe

There is a great podcast up on Orvis News featuring Brian O'Keefe talking to Tom Rosenbauer about how to take better pictures.  In a way, Brian is partly responsible for this Web site.  Several years ago he was on an Ask About Fly Fishing Podcast discussing bonefish in the Bahamas.  Listening to him describe bonefishing was like pouring gas on the flats fishing fire and really helped to get me hooked on bonefishing in the Bahamas.

Brian puts together Catch online magazine and it is my favorite online magazine.  The photo's are the best fly fishing photos you will see and I always look forward to the new editions.
