Bonefish on fly rod!

August 05, 2015 by David Moloney

Trip Info


Fly fishing trip for bonefish, we headed to some nice sandy flats that wet the edge of the gulf and started push poling the boat. We noticed a sting ray coming onto the flat and I saw something following it. I had my guy cast right on top of the ray and as soon as he did he had 6 bonefish rush his fly. With a couple jigs of the shrimp fly it was eaten and he had a nice FLORIDA keys bonefish on an eight weight fly rod. We saw more but never got close to any, the rest of the day.
