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.

Great Deneki Video

I was working on some gear the other night and wanted to whip a loop into my fly line.  I have a 7 weight bass pro shop's rod that was my very first fly rod.  It is a three piece and has a medium action.  I keep it strung up in my garage for hitting the local ponds and I use it for smallmouth's, too.

I needed to add a new whipped loop onto both ends and so I googled whipped loop and came across this really great video from one of the best on the flats, Capt. Bruce Chard.  The video was added as part of Deneki's lineup of videos.

This is a great way to connect your fly line to your leader or to your backing.  Check it out.
