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.

Salty Shores Review of Long Island Bonefish Lodge
My friend Sam Root of the Web site Salty Shores was one of the writers on my Long Island, Bahamas adventure. He just shared his review of the trip which can be found here. Sam is a photographer so sit back and enjoy some of the pictures he took. As you might remember from my report, the weather on this trip kind of stunk, but Sam was still able to make the place look beautiful.
And speaking of Sam, I happened to notice that there is a story about him and his saltwater fly fishing tournament, the Salty Fly, in the latest copy of Fly Fishing in Saltwater. Be sure to check it out on page 18. It's a great story for what really is a neat event.
Check out Sam Root in the latest FFSW and learn about the Salty Fly.
