Fly fishing on those flats must be one hell of an experience!

wading the flats is an amazing way of fishing more like hunting esp when alone , looking for a glint , tail , or fin , scanning the bottom for fresh poc holes where bones have been feeding on crab , watching the fish hawks for a sign of fish , and when you find the bones the cudas and sharks are always close by then a group of bones maybe 3 or a dozen are coming you way in squadron formation working against the flow of water tipping up now and again driving into the sand on crabs, you get the bone fish jitters and the fish are coming down your throat as you try in vain to make a good cast into a 20mph wind , the pressure is immense you've waded for hours for a shot and when it comes its as if your arms turn to jelly , if the cast is too short they can change direction every 10ft, if its too long you've blown it , but if its on the money and you hook up its fishing heaven :thumbs: that still don't mean you get your fish I along with the others have had cudas and sharks chop a bone fish within a yard or so off our feet, 3 bones coming out the mangroves on a falling tide then a hook up IMG_5963_zpslu02gni4.jpgIMG_5974_zpsmzupy4w9.jpg] bahamasfishing048.jpg playing a shark on fly off the boat IMG_5935_zpsatphdtwp.jpg
