If you watched Pirates of the Flats last year on ESPN you’ll recognize some of the names… Yvon Chouinard, Tom Brokaw, Michael Keaton and Bill Klyn are all there. New are Zach Gilford and Lori-Ann Murphy.
A new show is in the works, basically Pirates of the Flats 2, but renamed, expanded and moved from the network that no longer supports angling, to a network that does… the Outdoor Network.
The cameras are moving from the flats of Abaco to the flats of Florida and Belize and the target species are expanding from bonefish to include permit and tarpon. The new show films this summer and will broadcast in early 2011.
Once again this will be done in conjunction with the Bonefish and Tarpon Trust, so conservation will be a cornerstone of the program.
