Sorry to disappoint It's a Canon SX200 which has manual functions and 12x optical but in the end it's just a point and shoot

if it's not prying, what'd you shoot with (can't be a point 'n shoot)? That sequence is a SERIOUS mood-changer. I mean, you can just about smell the flats . . . and the slime . . . that heavy, tepid air . . . awesome !!

|juro||Thanks Alan - coming from you, I am very appreciative! Your books and photography have had my attention for years.|

Oh, what a great photo-sequence . . . thanks for sharing!

Great Pics and stories, Juro.
See you in a couple weeks.

|juro||Hey Steve hope you are well - yes I took that with one hand on the rod That flat was dream-like and the bones were fast moving targets requiring timing accuracy and distance. I loved fishing at that location.|

Juro, is that your video?

We caught a nice 25 to 30 lb fish on the flats and it did taste damn good. The general rule the islanders use is that if it's back on the flats it's fine and if it's on the reef they don't eat it. Personally, I would have preferred to catch a 10lber on the flats and eaten that instead.

None of us got pictures of Juro with the barracuda on the end of his fly line. Good thing that he didn't land it as Felton was threatening to cook one for us. If you have ever been tempted to eat one of those things, read this from today's Times.

Got cabin fever?
hehe - check out that flat! I was in bonefish heaven for real.

We make the long hike back and look forward to a meal fit for royalty at Felton's "Palace" at Salina Pt.

|FredA||My fondess memory of my one Acklins trip was doing that hike twice. The first was exploratory with Juro, ending at was the most esthectically pleasing spot of the week, for me. Next year...|

As it would turn out, this was my day for big numbers. I ended up hooking over a dozen bones by every way possible - those running across open flats, tailers, singles, sand bars, grass, it was a day at the bonefish academy.
This bad boy kicked my ass! He looks so calm now, don't believe it he deserves an academy award for this act.
What a great day. Even though my feet were bandaged up from various cuts and blisters the walk was well worth it. Time was running out so I headed back to see what the other two birds of prey were up to
Shoals of bones! There were hundreds of bonefish in this area, making nervous water like you see in the foreground.
Walt had a banner day. As Tom and I walked by Walt motioned us over to join in the fracas. That fish magnet had found shoals of bonefish working around up in a creek things got crazy for a while.
Tom was on fire!
Walt puts the icing on the cake with this last fish of a great day...

Signs of a peaceful place to carve a living from the island mark this area, very old glass bottles and artifacts; also stone walls with culverts to control flow.
Along the way, we stop and admire the beautiful shoreline
Tom hooks a huge triggerfish
I decide to go exploring and spook a huge shoal of bonefish into deeper water. This tempts me to dig deeper into the back country to find some of the dreamiest bonefish territory I've ever seen, knowing it's got to amount to something... so I walk on.
Finally I find more bones, this time I don't splosh right into the middle of them and land a feisty one to start the day.
