OK, this is your last warning.
One week from today, we’re doing a drawing from the list of folks who are signed up for our weekly newsletter. The lucky angler whose name we draw is going to get sent, at no charge – not even postage, a $1375 super-high-end bonefishing setup – a Sage 890-4 Xi3, a Sage 6080 reel, and a Rio Tropical Clouser in an 8 weight.

Over the past couple of weeks we’ve told you a little bit about why we think the Xi3 and the 6080 are great choices for bonefish on South Andros. Today, a little reminder on why we fish the Rio Tropical Clouser a lot down there.
- Our bonefish get big, and big fish like big flies.
- They’re not very spooky, and they often eat close to the boat.
- Our guides are good, so most of the time you’re set up with the fishing swimming right at you.
Why the Tropical Clouser
- It’s got a short front taper that turns over big flies easily.
- Its head is short and heavy, which helps load your rod at close range.
Not very common on South Andros: “Bonefish, 11 o’clock, 80 feet, land it softly, mon!”
Very common on South Andros: “Bonefish, 11 o’clock, 30 feet, coming at you – land it now!”
That’s why we like the Rio Tropical Clouser.
