I've never been there but the scene in "Rise" where they're bonefishing in Los Roques looks so awesome

Hi Vince
All the fish in the photos were taken with floating flies. It's my preferred method.

It is so much more fun using those floating gummies. Watching those fat piggies turn their bodies vertical to get those flies. Gently pulling the fly out of it's mouth because it just can't eat it that way, watching it try again, pulling it out of it's mouth again, repeat......

Pretty damn nice fishing Pete. I take back all the gummy pelican jokes and hope to join you next year as well.

Maybe we should have a LR clave
