Yeah… I’m not ready for Hollywood, but these little videos are fun.

That is exactly how most of my fishing with non-fisher conversations go!
Practice your casting, homey. Seriously. 20 minutes a day, every day, with an 8wt, between now and the trip. by far the biggest mistake by traveling anglers headed to flats destinations is that they don’t practice their casting.
Yeah… I know I should practice… really, I think my casting is likely good enough… I can hit 50 in the wind. I can hit 70 in the calm… maybe 65… that’s about what I need. I will be bringing a couple new rods, so when I get those, I’ll get out on the grass a bit.
“Lots and lots and lots of bonefish”, lol. Love the glasses too Bjorn.
BTW, I’d take a little rod w/ you, say a 5 or 6. Say the wind is up one day and you have to push way back into the creeks and all you find are little schoolies. Well, on a 5-weight a 3 pound bone feels like you’ve hooked a jetski. FUN doesn’t begin to describe it. I always take a little “toy” rod w/ me now.
My daughter (4) has a 2 weight… but that may be too light.
I’ll bring a 7, on the low end… that’s what I used for big trout. My 5 weight reels would not do well on a bonefish… they’d probably catch on fire.
I really like the video. I’ve stopped having conversations with my coworkers about what I do on vacation. It doesn’t come across well
I know how that goes. My co-worker has no interest… but then she also insists I go to the bathroom with her and I often read kids books to her. Of course, I’m a stay-at-home dad, so that makes a lot of sense in that context.
Ahh, fine cinema! I love it.
