hunting bonefish without a guide, that is.
pure irony has it that i was born in Florida but haven’t yet caught a bonefish, permit or tarpon. three things i’ll have to remedy asap ! i’ve landed a few good sized ‘cudas and even a little aligator but not on the fly so they don’t count because ‘cudas are ugly and ‘gators aren’t really fish but mostly if it ain’t not on the fly, it ain’t not on the fly…
anyway, it’s not often we get to see takes in such a clear manner. the fish fighting to get to the fly first is about as exciting as it gets in fly fishing.
the way they rip line off the reel on their way to Cuba comes close second. enjoy !
ps: the film wasn’t shot in Florida but i’ll pretend it was.
