I wanted to let folks know that ESPN is going to be airing a show in Jan. 2010 called "Pirates of the Flats" that is all about bonefish. Yvon Chouinard, Tom Brokaw, Tom McGuane, Val Atkinson and Michael Keaton.

I couldn't get a gauge on if I could post a link to information about the series, but if you look for the title of the show, you should be able to find stuff on it.

Could be either pretty interesting or really boring. Time will tell. Looks like they do some work with the Bonefish and Tarpon Trust, so seems like they are going to be talking conservation in addition to chasing the gray ghosts and drinking.

Should be interesting. Keep an eye open for it.
