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.

Southern Culture on the Fly

Take a moment and imagine what would happen if you combined the southern feel of Garden & Gun Magazine with a mayfly hatch of the Drake...and then stuck it, greasy fingers and all, on your iPad.  This southern fried treat would be Southern Culture on the Fly.  

Most e-zine's lose me because the writing isn't always up to par and the photography can be so-so.  Also, if the articles drone on and on they can get boring.  Not so with SCOF.

As a good southern boy, I appreciate how the focus is on the south and the great fishery we have.   Plenty of pics and enough story to hold my interest throughout the read. 

Louis Cahill is a photographer I really admire and has quite a few pics throughout the issue. In addition, my friend Cameron Mortenson of The Fiberglass Manifesto has a gear review that is well thought out.

Finally, they have some super cool videos.  Check out this one.
