Nice looking stuff there gents.

Vice time has been limited for me this winter as well. I did sit down after getting back from a bahamas trip back in Jan and tie up a few more of the fly I would have liked to have had a lot more of down there. Freestyled a few others, mainly variants of some of Drew Chicone's "essential bonefish patterns." Might be able to manage a pic or two at some point.

Other than those few attempts, my tying table has been more of a yarnball factory than tying table as of late. Kind like my boats (lawn ornaments) and fishing rods (closet space taker uppers).

Some of the bonefish snacks I've been putting together recently. Mostly fairly simple concoctions of rabbit fur, hair, flash and rubber legs which seems to be a solid recipe for bonefish in certain locals, particularly over turtle grass.














































So often I seem to find myself with boxes full of flies that aren't quite right. My trip trip to the Bahamas in January was much like that. I had exactly 4 of a fly that was just right and I happened to lose them all in the mouths of mega bonefish headed somewhere far away from where I hooked them.

Ah the Bahamas...






























I'll be back.

Coley,
Nice series of pics. Been there before are far as not having the right flies, thankfully just not in the Bahamas.
Anything tan is always my go to down that way along with different weight eyes. Blind patterns saved the one day while fishing off my knees for spooking bones in a salt lake.
Looks like you got hit with a pretty good blow. What island were you on?
That fish looks great.

Bread crumbs, lime, coconut, and grated Parmesan. At first glance it does look a little weird, but not to worry, the end result was delicious.

As was the octopus that I happened across in the shallows and cooked up Abu Reefer style.

We were on Green Turtle Cay which is a tiny little island just off of Great Abaco. Awesome little place with super friendly locals and some great options for some family friendly activities.

I'd read that the fishing would be challenging, that the fish were fewer and farther between than in most other places, that the fish were spooky due to pressure, but that the fish here were on the large side. My experience was in line with all of this. It took me a little while to figure out timing and a few places, but after a few days I was getting shots every time out. Didn't have a lot of time to devote to fishing but had some very memorable experiences on a few of times I did get a little time to flog the water.

What pattern was it that you wish you had?
Your box looks like it had the right stuff for down that way.

More of the types of flies that I posted pictures of. I've tied up a bunch since having returned. The fish I was finding were primarily over grass beds. As such, the fly that was working well was one that was fairly weed friendly that had good natural movement without stripping. Rabbit, marabou, and long flowy materials that moved well with the natural micro currents seemed to be the ticket. The flies needed to be able to be stripped once or twice quickly through the grass without hanging up and then look enticing sitting motionless on top when the fish came to inspect them. Tans and light browns with a touch of color (pink/orange). Rubber legs have surprisingly good movement when stationary.

Is that a switch Luis?
If so, that would be good for salmon and overkill for cutts.

I fish a Sage XP 697-4 probably 95% of the time off the beaches.
If I was going to buy a new stick, the Scott Radian and Meridian rods are sweet.
I've heard good things about the new Sage X as well.

Totally understand wanting to be able to use a rod for multiple fishing applications.
A 5 wt switch is probably equivalent to say a 7 wt single handed?
Probably a good choice for coho but still a little overkill for cutts.
I know some guys fish 3 & 4 wt switch rods for river trout and off the beaches for cutts.

I wish I was more help but I'm challenged when it comes to two handed fishing and knowledge about the rods and lines.
