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.

Jon Makim Flies

I came across a fly tyer from Australia who really ties up some sweet, salty flies.  Jon Makim ties flies that ship all over the world and I bet you could find on any bonefish flat.  According his Web site, he has fly fished since his early twenties and was able to parlay that into a full time profession and now ties flies full time.
He has some really great crab patterns and shrimp patterns on his site that look really well tied.

Take a look and browse through his Web site.  He has some real eye candy on here for the flats and saltwater fly fisherman.

Here is a flats assortment of Jon's flies.  They can be purchased here.
