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.

Hell's Bay Whipray Classic

Good Friday to you fine folks here on the Bonefish Flat.  It's been a short week, but a busy one for me.  I'm glad we made it to the weekend.  So start your Friday off right with a video from the fine folks at Hell's Bay Boatworks featuring the legendary Flip Pallot.

If you ever wondered "is Flip the real deal," checkout how my man is throwing a total mean loop in this video.  Plus, check out the deck on this boat.  This is one sweet ride.  I've really gotten a kick out of watching Hell's Bay build this boat. They did a lot of updates on Facebook as to how they put it together and it was absolutely fascinating.

Speaking of boats (no I don't have one yet and it's a sore subject here at bonefish flat HQ), I have a sweet interview coming up next week from one of the premier skiff builders around.  Be sure to stay tuned for that.
