1997: Venezuela - bonefish

Los Roques was an adventure! We travelled to this exotic destination without any pre-bookings. Hardcore DIY. We ended up at a beach house of our pilot eating snapper every day. I got food poisening and lay in bed for two days. My white face on the top image shows the pale look. A lobster fisherman would take us around for 50us$ a day. It wasn't hard to find the bonefish. They were everywhere! We even bumbed into some baby tarpon. At first I tought I was casting to a world record bonefish. When it started jumping after the hook-up I knew it was tarpon. My first ever on fly.
