As a young boy and teenager I surfed avidly. Always romanticized about fare away shores in the south Pacific with glass-clear waters and perfectly formed wave sounded in teh evening by exotic beauties wearing the coconut cups as bikini tops. That was before I discovered saltwater fly fishing however. Well the boys from Gin-Clear Media are showing us another reason to visit the south pacific with their Release of “The Search – Tahiti” a true adventure in fly fishing videos. Watch as they trek through un-inhabited islands and hop rides as hitch-hikers aboard freighters on a journey seeking the biggest bonefish on the planet. It’s so unspoiled that it’s almost unfair.

I found myself watching in amazement as the bones fearlessly bite down on almost anything presented to them. The footage and scenery is amazing. The only down-side of the film is watching bonefish after bonefish escape and break-off leaders and lines due to their shear size. I don’t thing in the entire 58 minutes of this DVD they pulled anything under 10 lbs out of the water. If you’re a saltwater fly fishing enthusiast then you’ll appreciate this film. You’ll be carried away in your living-room as you watch in amazement.

92 in the shade

92 in the shade

If you’ve ever considered “chucking it all” and moving to the tropics to start a charter business. Then more than likely someone probably gave you the advice to read or watch “92 in the shade”. A tale of a young drifter hippie played by Peter Fonda whom returns to his home town in the Florida Keys and starts his flats fishing charter company. He quickly learns that old captains can be as possessive as a pit-bull with a ham bone. This film is classic 1970s everything. The old flats boats made of fiberglass and plywood. The “jive” talk, shag carpet, and over-all peace, love, and chicken grease feel. It also happens to be extremely funny. Having grown up and spent alot of time around South Florida and it’s fishing & diving community there are some closely drawn similarities to that era. This is a classic saltwater fishing movie and the last film ever produce by Thomas McGuane. It should be apart of every saltwater flats fishing enthusiast movie library.

If you’re planning or thinking of planning a fishing trip to Belize make certain you have your double haul down pat. One of the first things most notice when Fly Fishing in the tropics of Belize is that your game has to ellevate to catch fish. Not only are the fish a thousand times fore skittish then fishing some mountain stream with ripples in the water and structures such as rocks and large overhanging trees and brush. But the fish are typically 70 feet and out to reach them. Add on top of all that a prevailing trade wind that averages 12 to 16 knots from sun-up to sun-down and you have no choice but ensure your casting and presentation skills are top-notch.

I can’t recall how many times friends have come to visit for a week excited about a.) fishing for Tarpon, Permit, and Bonefish here in my home off Ambergris Caye in Belize. And almost as important b.) they get to stay at my house for free thus reducing the costs of paying for lodging and the 200 to 300 per day charged by the majority of Belize fly fishing guides. (as you can imagine – this makes a Belize fishing adventure very affordable. Just food, gas for my boat, and airfare). Yet with all this stacked in their favor they still find themselves riddled with frustration and angst by the end of day three. The reason; they didn’t come prepared and have no had to be forced into using their valuable fishing time as real-life practice time. I’ve seen it take anywhere from 3 to 5 days before they catch a fish. At that moment they forget about the days of hell that have just pasted. But I guarantee they would have preferred to be catching fish those days prior to the first one.

So what can you do about? Well, I suggest finding a rather open stretch of water – preferably one with a stiff breeze blowing across the surface and practice various casting techniques such as the Belgium cast. Not to mention that you should make absolutely certain you have your Double Haul cast down. I’ve had great success by turning friends onto a DVD aptly named Joan Wulff’s Dynamics of Fly Casting. This woman has had more experience as a professional WINNING Fly Caster than probably anyone I’ve ever met. Watching the grace and rhythm of which she carefully guides her fly line will inspire anyone. I’m including a little video clip about her below, along with a link to Amazon where you can pick up her Dynamics of Fly Casting DVD for an extremely reasonable price of about 20.00 bucks. And trust me, $20.00 is the best investment you’ll make prior to coming down to Belize to fish the flats.

It doesn’t matter wether you’re a fly fisherman, sport fisherman, or any other type of fisherman. The incredible Mr. Limpet should be in your DVD library. A classic film that in 1964 set new limits to movie making by merging the animated with the real life. An imaginative and joyful 99 minutes that has thrilled adults as much as children. This classic Fish story that refuses to become a relic and out-dated. Forty years later The Incredible Mr. Limpet still astounds and captivates audiences be their first or forty first viewing. If you’re a youngster and new to fishing but are curious as to the underwater workings of Fish, this film will not give you an accurate portrayal. It will however, make you laugh and appreciate the lighter side of life as you see it lived through Henry Limpert (Don Knotts) a some what goofy character that finds himself literally living his dreams through that of a cartoon fish in World War II. This film is chalked full of classic characters and names and faces you’ll surely recall as you enjoy this film.
