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.

Skiff Republic

Hopefully you had a chance to see the interview up yesterday with Marshall Cutchin of Midcurrent and Skiff Republic.  If not check it out here

I haven't said much about Skiff Republic because I've been trying to get the interview ready and done with Marshall.  But let me tell you, Skiff Republic is one of the greatest new sites out there.  If you like to salt water fly fish, sooner or later you're going to gravitate to a love of boats.  And for stalking skinny water, that means skiffs. 

These little boats can come with big price tags or they can be very reasonably priced.  Whatever your poison, or if you're like me and don't have a skiff....yet....Skiff Republic is there to help scratch that itch.

Check out the new site here or freshly fried up under the conch fritters section of the site.
