On arrival at our flat we hopped out and began to wade down a long slightly marly flat. Every so often we might sink a little which made going a little slow. Cayito our guide almost immediately put us into fish, and despite the imperfect conditions Rick had four good fish by lunch time. As the fish headed towards us up wind and up tide they almost appeared green in colour which made spotting them considerably easier. I waded a little further away from the two of them and managed to land a couple of nice fish, the second one being about five pounds or so.
At lunchtime I had arranged to meet up with Will, Jamie, Kirsty Nightingale and Alistair Robjent at the old conch shack out on the flats. This is a fantastic little building almost entirely constructed from drift wood and other flotsam and jetsam. It is built on stilts out on one of the flats, and offers a fantastic opportunity to get out of the sun and catch up with the days events. Everyone arrived excited, and as the sun had now appeared for an extended period of time the fishing had improved. We eagerly swapped stories and pics while munching on an fantastic salad and pork escalopes supplied in the cooler along with cold drinks. While we ate I spotted a tailing fish directly out the back waving at us while we ate. Perfect.
Kirsty had just lost 15lb barracuda on a popper, had also landed six bonefish, and Alistair had managed a couple. After lunch they disappeared off with their guide Jesus for more action. The rest of us did a swap, so Jamie joined me, and Rich went off with Will. The next couple of hours fishing were great with Jamie and I landing three apiece before turning our bow for home, a reviving shower and some good food. The rest of the party also had a good day with Liam landing his first five bonefish on fly.
