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.

The Weekly Roundup

There seems to be lots going on in the saltwater fly fishing world so I thought I would compile it for your reading pleasure.


My dad scored what might be the last fish of the year at Thanksgiving. A little Maryland Rockfish.

AWESOME interview with THE Captain of Hells Bay, Chris Peterson, by non other than Marshall Cutchin himself over at Skiff Republic.

Speaking of Hells Bay, even if you're like me and don't have one (....yet), you can still pimp your ride with a new sticker from our friends in Titusville.

In more new product news, my friend Cam over at The Fiberglass Manifesto has some super sweet new shirts for sale

The Drake is having a 15 percent off sale. Merry Drakemas!

The fearless leader of The Drake was interviewed by Forbes Magazine, because Tom rolls like that!

Howler Brothers is having a big sale too.

Bonefish Bjorn interviews Jim Klug about the fishing trip of a lifetime.

The 411#3 is playing with Camels and eating goats.

And last but not least, my boy Brent from Uprising is catching way to many fish and enjoying life a little too much in Idaho (something about escaping the hustle and bustle of the big city sounds pretty good about now).

There you have it. All the fly fishing news you need to keep yourself in the know.

  1. Many thanks, J.T. Idaho is great, but I could sure use a saltwater trip and some warm weather right now.

    Hope you have a great Christmas.
