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 Flat Updates

A few new things to update you on here. A few weeks back I changed the header of the site which I hope everyone likes. That's a bonefish I caught a few years back in the Bahamas.

I've added three new blogs that I really dig to the blog roll/web site roll, now dubbed conch fritters (pretty cute, huh).
is a blog about saltwater fly fishing, carp, and rock and roll...and not necessarily in that order. It's a great read.
Eat More Brook Trout is a very well written blog on trout fishing, but the genuine love of fly fishing for everything, including salty species, really comes through. Chris who writes this was on the Long Island, Bahamas trip with me.
Flatswalker is the real salty deal. Davin Ebanks, a flats guide from Grand Caymen, writes this little gem and it's worth adding to your daily routine.

Finally, I'm really trying to do more with Facebook by pushing out more stuff so if you don't "like" me here, than you're missing out.


  1. Thanks JT! Keep up the good work, brother.

  3. I've been reading Davin's stuff for almost two years now. It's damn-near literary works of art.

    I'll be checking out Uprising during layovers today, thanks for sharing!
