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.

Flip and Oliver

It's been a little quiet on the Flat lately for one simple reason...the Man has been keeping me busy at work.  But not to worry, I have some new stuff on the way and a new interview in the works that I'm really excited about.

In the meantime, two guys who refuse to bow to the Man are Flip Pallot and Oliver White.  If you visit here at all, you know that I'm a huge fan of Flip.  Turns out Oliver is, too.  The two are pairing together to try to recreate some of the Walker's Cay magic in a new show called either Outdoor Rendezvous or the Torch.  There are two different trailers and one is a private link, but you access it here.

I really don't know much other than what you see here.  But it looks off the hook cool.  Man, I should have been Oliver!!
