Homeward bound

What a trip. The amount of bonefish caught could only be summed up on a calculator. Observing these fish in their natural environment is something special. Lucky for us we captured a lot of it on film. The camera's highlight witnessed a school of bonefish's last few minutes in the mangroves before the outgoing tide pushed them out of their secure hiding spot and into the danger zone. It was amazing to see a black tip shark and barracuda waiting so patiently for these fish.  On a different note I hooked a 15-20 lb range snook in the mangroves only to loose the beauty seconds after. Snook are rare down there and to feed one was quiet the experience. Between the footage from this past week and the great lakes it is safe to say I have a lot of editing to do. Tight Lines!
Getting a circle hook out of a sharks lip can be tough but rewarding! Didn't quiet get there on this one. 

After an endless day of polling and a cursed go pro camera we finally got a beautiful feed on camera.

Breaking your back on the fly tying press is worth it!
