It takes a commitment but follow these steps and you will be rewarded.

1. We admitted we were powerless over bonefish—that our lives had become unmanageable.
2. Came to believe that only a bonefish trip could restore us to sanity.
3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to this trip and begin to make plans.
4. Made a searching and fearless inventory of all our equipment.
5. Admitted to our wives, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of this trip.
6. Were entirely ready to make this trip and remove all doubts.
7. Humbly asked our wives to bless the trip.
8. Made a list of all persons we wanted to invite, and became willing to extend invites to them.
9. Made direct contact with such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
10. Continued to take detailed inventory of our equipement and when we wanted something purchase it.
11. Sought through prayer, meditation and practice to improve our casting skills, praying for clear eyesight and the power to see through chop and glare.
12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we packed our bags and headed to the airport.

Is that like the alcoholic who is going to quit after one more drink? If you discover the cure don't tell me!!!

Hi Baggage
I am afraid I don't agree with your first post.:)
Normally if people use that sort of language it means that they want to remove the problem.:eek:
If that is the case then I think you are probably on the wrong board. You may want bonefishaddicts anonymous.

I think that most people here would not want to consider themselves as "addicts" but perhaps "enthusiasts" or maybe "devotees" or "zealots" in so far as if you admit you are one of those it's OK and you can continue.:hihi:

I am sure there must be better words to define the condition.
