I wanted to share with Orvis these pictures of my son, Jake, playing and releasing bonefish in Nassau earlier this month. Last year, while on a family vacation, we went on his first bonefish charter (in Nassau), and that time we had to run away from Hurricane Earl. This year we had to delay our trip due to Hurricane Irene, which had those of us in Long Island, New York, in its path.
My son Jake is 8 years old, and with the help of our fishing guide, Aaron Bain, he was able to hook 4 bonefish on the fly and insisted on releasing them himself without assistance. We left them biting because we were really on a family vacation, and my wife would have killed me if we stayed out the full day.
I think the pictures speak for themselves, and I suspect we’ll be seeing more of young Jake in the future.
