The credit all goes to Lefty, all I did was reserve the site.
Knowing what a PIA orchestrating such an event can be I Really appreciate Lefty's work on this.

Thanks to BigCat for lighting the fire, never saw you out there, hope all is well.

Thanks Jim and Terry. It was great to reconnect and make new friends and of course fish. Terry would you pm me your address so I can send some gurglers your way - that's the fly that worked for us - not great but it worked better than anything else we threw at them. Thanks again!!!

Looks familiar...I was on that jetty in June :-) Long ride in over some pretty tough roads unless you know your way thru the golf course

I had a great time thanks to the phenomenal weather, great company, excellent food and loads of fish in the area . Monday was nice enough for me to take my boat outside the bay for most of the day. I got to chase some albies and even caught one! Wish I'd switched to the white bunny fly sooner . Terry, thanks again for organizing the event! (oops, I still owe you the clave-meister fly )

Here's the sunrise photo I took on Sunday. The clouds make the sun look like it's wearing shades like the emoticon .

Looks like this Clave was one of the most successful . Thanks to Jim W and Terry and Big Cat. Next year I'll plan on staying longer. Great timing. FishHawk.

I would very much agree the clave was a great success.
The weather, though a bit windy later, was absolutely gorgeous. Nothing I like better than being on the water or in the piney woods when Nature treats us with her best conditions. The sights and sounds and smells are like a drug to me. I swear I suffer withdrawl when I have to leave.

Ever since the very first Bone clave in that very spot, the gourmet food has been a tradition which was carried to perfection this time around. The striper chowder, the grilled bluefin, Maine venison and of course the peach cobbler were beyond my ability to describe adequately. Those were just examples from a plethora of awesome eats. We had enough to feed twice our number.

Without the companionship a clave is just another campout. It was a pleasure to reconnect with old friends and to make new ones. The BS sessions in the evenings will be an important part of the memories of the event that I will enjoy through the winter as I day dream about the coming season.

And of course the fishing, the reason we all go to such great efforts. Well, one prediction I made was accurate - we did have to work for our fish! Although not the crazy numbers of previous weeks, the albies were present in decent numbers. They weren't all that easy to find and once found none too easy to hook, but we had shots every day. Jim and I had the benifit of inside intel from scouts prowling the Vinyard shores on foot. It was their efforts that tipped us off to the bait and albies that provided us with all our action for the whole trip. It required alot of floating around in dead water waiting for the fish to show but perserverence paid off. As long as you could spot the bait or the fish from a distence and get on them quick without spooking them, you could get two or three casts before they went down. Once out of every hundred or so shots a fish might hit. That's albies for ya.
A few stripers and rat blues filled out the bag and a couple vinyard slams were acomplished.
The wind that built to gale force Monday afternoon prematurely ended or efforts and cut down our total catch. It also provided for some very interesting travels accross the water. I've often been told by nonfisherpeople that I preactice fishing as an "Extreme Sport". If they could only have seen us crossing Vinyard Sound Monday afternoon! Like riding a bucking bronco eight miles while a fire hose sprayed you in the face. I'm still limping and the bruise on my knee from the console will be with me for awhile. I loved it! Do it again tomorrow if I could.

Many thanks to Lefty for the organizing, thanks to Jim for securing the site and having me onboard and thanks to all those who showed up. Sign me up for next year!

Great Marathon

Well, here's to never acting your age. After a marathon of driving, chasing Tuna and three days of Boneclave, I'm ready for more...and my lower back might be.
I can only echo the preceding comments: the fishing was hard enough to make you want to go right back at it; the food was to die for; the companionship was the very best.
Special thanks to Lefty for all the liason work and Jim W for his decisiveness; and, for me, to Jim Miller for the hospitality, companionship and virtual guiding.
