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.

Cape Eleuthera Bonefish Flat's Group

First off, no I'm not kidding.  The Cape Eleuthera Institute has a Bonefish Flat's group that is conducting research on bonefish habitat.  Must be a cool group, right?

I came across this blog posting today sharing the good work that is going on at Cape Eleuthera.  The students are studying bonefish habitat and how climate change will effect bonefish in the future.

I never get tired of looking at bonefish.  Courtesy of Cape Eleuthera Institute.  
I got to know the head of the Cape Eleuthera institute, Aaron Shultz, on my trip to Long Island, Bahamas.  We roomed together a few nights and had some really fantastic discussions about bonefishing, conservation, and barefoot wading for bonefish.  

More on Cape Eleuthera coming soon.
