Very nice

Juro

Killer advice about the rod/reel/fly combo. I've gotten some moderate hassle about the rod tubes and have been asked once if they are guns. (FYI, don't throw your hands in the air and...

The oool DIY dilemma

I have tried DIY on three different islands now in the Bahamas and have had moderate luck, but by far the best success for me has been Long Island. You can walk off the plane and rent a car (in...

Green Drake spinner pattern??

I have been fishing a couple spots the last couple years where I swear the fish are taking Green Drake spinners, even though I've only seen a couple of them in the air. I've been doing some...

Great pictures! That is a nice snapper. Looking at these pics and then looking out my window at the snow flying is not helping my mood right now......

Weed guards....

This maybe should be a whole new thread and probably has been covered already, but JR mentioned weed guards in his other post and pulled a question out of my head that's been there for a while.

There you have it

Obviously, the "two days stranded in bonefish paradise" was a tongue in cheek comment. It would not be fun at all, particularly spending a night in a hole in the sand sharing a half eaten sandwich. ...

If only

Randall Kaufman in his excellent book "bonefishing" calls West Andros one of the most remote bonefishing destinations on the planet. Supposedly some absolutely massive fish over there that go thier...

Those are some cool pics!! Really enjoyed seeing those and hearing about the different theories. I really like the one that other baitfish are knocked senseless when the pelican hits the...

What a bummer...

Josko

Sorry to hear that the weather mucked things up for you so badly. Sounds like the multi-day kayak trip would have been a no-go anyway huh? Hopefully things pick up for you soon. Stop by...

fun stuff

I have never used the slingshot cast but actually got the bow and arrow cast down pretty good early in my fishing career when I fished several tiny, brush choked streams a couple hour drive from my...

Marlies

I had one of the marlwalker's the first year they came out (late 1990's) and I absolutely trashed the hell out them in one week in Belize. Of course, your hoofing around on nothing but coral there,...

Juro is my hero!!

I have only fished for Tarpon once and didn't even see a fish. However, I managed a fly shop for 5 years and had one customer that spent a lot of time in Florida (his parents owned a house...

Excellent Point.

I like the idea of trimming down your fly "on-site" to match the conditions. I'm going to try that. I also totally agree with you that bonefish are not the most selective fish on the planet. I am...

Killer stuff

I had kind of the same experience as you did in that one of my mentors is an exceptional tyer and did so professionally at one time. He told me that he didn't feel like he knew a fly until he had...

Osthoff - He is the man

Hey Josko

Me and a friend have read and reread Osthoff's book and he is "the real deal" as he glossed himself in the book. We hiked in and did the St. Joe's river in Idaho near the Idaho/Montana...

Grand Cayman guides

Hello brothers,

I apparently am going (against my better judgement) on a mother-in-law sponsored cruise next March to Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Cozumel. Me and my wife did the same cruise about...

Well said.........

Nice post and I agree that the most "perfect spot" is not necessarily the most prolific spot. There is a flat on Exuma Island that I fished two years ago. My guide, Drex, would park his boat in...

Josko

I never gave you a proper report or said thank you for your help when we went to Andros in April. As I told you earlier, we stayed at Hank's Place for a week and fished every day, drank...

Nice tie

Any chance you would mind posting the specific recipe for that fly? I doubt I will find myself in LR anytime soon, but that fly looks like it would be a ton of fun to tie up. Thanks.

Agreed

Man, I was wondering if I was the only who was pissed off about this. I'm glad that someone else is lit up about it. I have never heard of or fished Sweetwater rods, but I totally agree that there...

No debate intended

Yeah, I have no interest into getting into a US vs. foreign made debate. That is not the reason I am so upset. I fully realize that the majority of goods that we (The US) consume are made overseas...
