In my past few saltwater trips, I have been thinking about some very simple things I think are useful in being prepared for success on the flats. On a whim, I made this short video at lunchtime with my guide in Cuba last month. I have a couple of warnings! First, it is as I said, done off the cuff. Secondly, these are very basic items and could be obvious for people who are expert at this kind of angling. That said, I think these two or three minutes point out some quick tips useful to beginning and intermediate flats anglers.
