Bonefishy interview subjects

Hey, so, I have a blog about bonefish... something I'm very interested in and have wayyyyyy too little experience with. I've been doing a series of interviews with folks from the Bonefish side of things and I'd love to know some names of folks that might make good interviews... folks with a unique perspective, a lot of experience, etc. I've done interviews with Bruce Chard, Yvon Choinard, Davin Ebanks (guide out of Grand Cayman), Captain Perry (out of Grand Bahama), Brian O'Keefe... some really interesting things to be said from that group.

Let me know if you have any ideas. Love to hear them.

Cheers,

Bjorn

I've always heard that Flip is pretty accessible. Larry Kaufman might be another good guy to talk to. I view his book "Bonefishing" as the bible of the sport. Dick Brown if you want something from a tying perspective. Stephen and Kim Vletas authors of "The Bahamas Fly Fishing Guide". Chico Fernandez.....etc

I don't know any of them personally but I've used info from all of them to refine my approach.

PM me the site if you get a chance, I'd like to take a look.

Aaron Adams would be a great interview. He is director of operatiions of Bonefish and Tarpon Trust. I've e-maled him several timesand have received excellent feedback. He also heads one of the depts. at Mote Marine in Sarasota. His book on Saltwater Prey is great for fly tiers.

He is really great at replying to folks for sure. He's on the list and will be doing an interview when he isn't so busy doing the stuff we all want him to be doing. I'm a member of the Bonefish and Tarpon Trust and hope everyone else here is too!

Thanks Vince. Would you be up for an interview? Bet you have a story or two to tell.
