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.

What do you read?

It's Washington. It's election eve, and everyone is a little tense. I'm sure the rest of the country is feeling it too and we are all ready for the ads to stop.

What better way to take your mind off the election than a good magazine. I read three print publications regularly. The Drake, Garden & Gun, and Fly Fly Fishing in Salt Water. The Drake and FFSW are pretty standard for most of you, but Garden & Gun may not be. Really cool writing, good pics, and lots of BBQ.

What do you read?




  1. Drake, Fly Fish Journal & Fly Rod & Reel in print, FFSW on digital subscription, browse Garden & Gun on the web.

    Reading Dick Brown's Bonefish book & R.H-B's A River Never Sleeps in non-glossy-pic-style of book right now, too...

  2. I still subscribe to the Drake and I usually pick up a copy of the Fly Fish Journal when it shows up at Hastings, but to be honest, I spend more time reading fly fishing blogs and e-zines than magazines. No disrespect to any mags, but I find the content of some blogs and e-zines to be more relevant and entertaining than what many of the hard copy professionals produce on a big budget.

    Plus, they're free (well, except Catch - which is well worth the price of admission).
