About this title


No brand of fly fishing challenges anglers more than stalking bonefish on tropical saltwater flats. With its hundreds of drawings and photographs and crisp and authoritative text, this will be the definitive book for years to come.

From the Back Cover:

No brand of fly fishing challenges anglers more than stalking bonefish on tropical saltwater flats.Fly Fishing for Bonefish offers a definitive profile of this elusive fish and thoroughly dissects the skills needed to catch it. Brown shows how to find and see bonefish - how to spot feeding and mudding signs, the camouflage techniques the fish adopts, the effects of tide, temperature, and weather on where the fish will be and how it can be spotted. Then he gives helpful advice on how to fish cruising or tailing fish, which stripping techniques work best, how to set drag, and the most effective ways to strike and fight bonefish.An especially interesting section treats fly selection and design - with color plates of more than seventy patterns tied by some of today's most innovative fly developers, including Carl Richards, Craig Mathews, Jack Gartside, Jeffrey Cardenas, Lefty Kreh, Ben Estes, Tim Borski, Jim Orthwein, and many others. Brown also catalogs major bonefish destinations around the world.With its hundreds of color and black-and-white photographs (the color sections on how to spot fish are exceptionally valuable), dozens of line drawings by Bob White, and a crisp, authoritative, and extensive text, Fly Fishing for Bonefish is the definitive book on what may well be fly fishing's ultimate challenge. (7 1/4 X 9 1/2, 372 pages, color photos, b&w photos, maps, illustrations, diagrams, charts)
