 Joe and Ed were in for a full day today of fly fishing for bonefish and permit.  The first few spots were slow but we did see a few schools of bonefish moving through.  Ed hooked up twice on shrimp but they turned out to be bonnet head sharks as we tried to maximize the time in spite of the nasty storm moving right towards us.  As the storm cell approached I made a run to another flat and there we saw a permit but no real shot at it.  Then I see a school of bonefish moving at 10 o'clock right at us.  I yell out direction and distance to Joe and he makes a great cast to the school and immediately hooks up.  After releasing the first bonefish of the day it got real slow for the remainder of the incoming tide.  When the tide turned we fished a new favorite flat on this tide stage and we found about a half dozen schools of bonefish mudding.  After a number of shots on shrimp Ed wasn't able to hook up but Joe got a quick throw of the fly and hooked a second bonefish that ended up spitting the fly.
