Firstly, I'm not sure where to put this so please feel free to move it if you want.

Secondly I ain't no Henry Gilbey so my ham fisted pictures do not do the place or more importantly the fish justice.
Bonefish are a really pretty fish - amazing blue edge to the fins.

Anyway this is the first fish of the day and my first ever bonefish.

The cheesy grip and grin.

Chocolatte with the biggest of the day - a bit over 2 lbs at a guess

All C&R although I'm told the locals do eat them if they get a chance...

All the fish were caught on a red and white shrimp pattern - about a size 10 and a floating 7 weight line.

Belize is a great place and I would recommend it highly.
If anyone is interested I can pm details of where we stayed.

Bonefish are superb on the fly rod and light jig gear.

Had some nice ones myself.

Maybe this thread should be in the International Catch Reports.
