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.

Flats Boat vs. Technical Poling Skiff

I've really been reading up on boats a lot lately, and I came across this video from Maverick Boatworks that explains the difference between a flats boat and a technical poling skiff.

Maverick makes some really well respected boats.  It looks like they have just reworked their Web site so if you haven't checked it out in a while, like me, then head over and spend a few minutes. Take a look and enjoy.
