Podcast: Using Science to Catch More Bonefish with Justin Lewis



This week, I interview Justin Lewis, fisheries scientist and native of Grand Bahama Island, who is The Bahamas Initiative Manager for Bonefish & Tarpon Trust (BTT). You’ll learn some fascinating science, what The Bahamas is doing to protect their near-pristine habitat, and some tips on catching bonefish based on the science we’ve learned from BTT’s research. (Note: This does not involve using tracking data to help anglers find fish.)

In the fly box, we talk about storing waders, head cement, swinging flies, coiling line, where to attach droppers, fishing PCB-contaminated waters, indicator types, wet-knot strength in tippet, and how to keep dry flies floating upright. Plus we have a couple great tips submitted by listeners.
