TBT: Bonefish Whisperer

As this video from 2009 illustrates, fly fishing guide Cordell Baum Jr. aka the bonefish whisperer, took a simpler approach to his craft. On the flats, he used a stable canoe with a push pole, standup fishing kayaks for lakes, and he walked or biked into canals to fish from shore.

Sadly, after spending time searching for more about Cordell, I learned that he passed away in September of 2019 after a long battle with cancer.
