Web Bonus from our July/September issue. Which flies have brought home bragging rights each year in the prestigious One Fly Competition?
Most flies for these big bonefish are a size or two larger than the rest of the bonefish world, with most flies falling between a size 2 and 1 and even size 1/0s.
Tranquility is a distinctly Caribbean word. Say it slow and you hear tin drums playing, you hear the lilt of cheerful island patois; it’s one of those beckoning words that belongs in a calypso song by Walter Ferguson: “Tran-quil-it-y/for you and me…” Or it would be a cool name for a fishing lodge in Belize.
