That’s right… I’m upset with Confluence Films. I’m upset for several reasons, but primarily because I’m selfish and prone to jealous. See, they are off to begin filming for their follow-up to Connect. I kind of love Connect because it is beautifully filmed, expertly crafted and also features the same waters in Cuba that I fished with one of the Confluence Film founders, Jim Klug. Where do they go to start filming for this next film?
St. Brandon’s Atoll (also known as Cargados Carajos Shoals).
That is why I’m upset.
Why would that make me upset? Primarily it is jealousy and my penchant for selfishness. See, I want to be fishing St. Brandon’s Atoll. Me! I want to go there! Now!
St. Brandon’s is in the middle of no where. The operation is a live-aboard as I don’t think there’s actually much land there. What you do have are just silly numbers of unmolested bonefish and Indo-Pacific Permit, GT’s and who knows what else.
The place is located to the east of Madagascar, way south of the Seychelles. I have no idea how long it takes to get there, but I’m guessing it is really, really quick, easy and comfortable to get to some tiny islands off the east coast of Africa. I mean, how hard could it be, right? And if you forget something, I’m pretty sure you can pop into the local Walmart or fly shop, right?
St. Brandon’s. Man. That is going to be kind of amazing footage.
I know it is going to be too long for me to wait to see the footage from St. Brandon’s, but I can’t wait to see it.
When you talk bucket lists, this place is tops.

Just recieved an email showing bonefish in San Diego. What’s up with that?
This is old news! I have not caught them yet, but I really, really should. And, I have to add my one good piece of bonefish trivia that there was a bonefish caught in SF Bay in 1914.
Man you’re getting spoiled from getting invited on all of these trips …… 🙂
Oh, I’m not upset that they didn’t take me… I’m just upset that anyone gets to fish there who isn’t me. I see it as more of a Zero Sum Game. If someone is having good fishing somewhere that means there is less of it for me to be having. Also, I’m totally kidding.
I’m not. I hate all these guys who’re just smarter, wiser, and luckier than me. I’m now gonna go pour myself something strong and practice my old guy grumble… (dang kids n’ their mumble mumble mumble).
