Just ignore the really white guy in the pictures...

See the wind waves in this pic. Normally that is flat and I guess bonefish are known to cruise this area. This is bahia state park:

Awesome pics!

Having been to Bahia Honda a few times I can hardly recognize it in that picture with all the chop. Last time I was there it was ripple-less and tarpon were busting pilchards out of the water. You had some tough weather those days, no doubt.

I can't wait to see Ben's new Keys section up and running!

Mainly the epoxy shrimp pattern you see here on Ben's site:

Also used a spun deer hair clouser looking fly but I forget the name. I want to say chernobyl crab...

Did not use any of mine as I figured I would stick with his stuff. Now I have 40 bonefish flies sitting in a box that will not get used until next time....

Use them for steelhead and salmon, they will work in the right situations.
