: Bonefish Swap - Final Report

02-27-2004, 08:38 AM
All flies have gone out this morning. I am holding back Dfix's to give them to him at UFT; Adrian will get his at Wilmington: Joe has asked me to use his for Wilmington Booth. Everyone got 7 flies (not including their own). 8 participants tying 7 flies . But we will have two boxes to auction or Raffle off. Each with a fly from Joe and Dick Brown. With only 8 particpants this swap was able to give each participant ALL the other flies....since 7 were tyed by all and mine and Joe's are the two boxes for the Raffle. There was really no hold back..because I participated in this swap and do not usually if I am Mine is actually to be considered the whole back with Joe's the extra Holdback... Got it?

Ah hah!

So, that makes at least two Bahamas reports to look forward to, including pics:devil:

Have a blast guys (Sean & JFB). BTW Sean did you catch Walker's Cay this Sunday moning? Flip Pallot was fishing Abaco and it looked seriously HOT :smokin:

I didn't get to catch that one. Hopefully I will have some good shots when I get back. Was he fishing the Sandy Point area?

He was at Cherokee point. Most of the action was deep jigging off the reef but there was some cool bonefishing in close. There is one school of residents there that has become famous for testing the patience of even the best :D
