Blitz Moments – Tropical Flats

There’s something special about standing on a tropical flat, scanning the water for a school of bonefish or a cruising permit, and the anticipation of waiting for the right moment to make your move.

Whether you’re taking your first destination saltwater fly fishing trip, or it’s just another getaway to that special remote island, the TFO Blitz is ready to get the job done.

Enjoy these photos from TFO Ambassador Trent Jones on his recent trip with some clients to a remote Caribbean island. Trent and his clients found success with the 10wt Blitz for permit, and had some fun target bonefish and triggerfish with the 9wt Blitz.

Triggerfish have become increasingly more popular to chase on the fly. They’re not afraid to get shallow, making them a fun (and often difficult) species to catch. // Photo: Trent Jones
