Bone of Contention

day 3 fish

I would like to log a formal complaint to Someone In Charge: Why exactly did my bonefishing trip have to end?

We had a spectacular time in Exuma. This year, for the first time ever Little Chick was invited to come along on the annual bonefishing trip. She loved it! And it was a treat to have her with us.

The weather improved just as we arrived, the sun came out and warmed up the air and the water and fish were schooling up nicely. We had three solid days of great fishing, and two that were come ci come ca. All in all, we’ll call that a victory!

Unfortunately I am short on time so the slideshow will have to tell the story for now. Cheers…

    Uhh- Monty I think most everyone has figured out the professor Dude’s role already.

    Looks like you all had a great time. I am officially jealous.

  6. for the record, the only people on this trip were my mom, my dad, Little Chick & moi. although the Professor was there in spirit and his recent influence on my forward cast (“Stop It Up High!”….”Push it to the Horizon, not the water!”) was on the trip too as I was casting pretty well…until the last day when the wind got hold of me and the wheels came off

    Little Chick is doing well. I look forward to her writing casting techniques book, “Casting from the third generation”.

    great video….my 12 year old son and i are going to acsention bay next month… will be his first fly rod trip….im just hopeing he can hold up for eight hour days……p.s…….he wants to go fishing with you and your daughter

  10. That is adorable. Tell him Little Chick wants to know how he enjoys it. I was worried about her on the boat out there for 8 hours as well. But she was enthralled with it. She saw stingray and sharks and bonefish and grouper. She was great on the boat. I thought she would go out for 1 day — she went out for four.
