Fly Fishing for Bonefish offers a definitive profile of this elusive fish and thoroughly describes the skills needed to catch it. Author Dick Brown shows how to find and see bonefish -- how to spot feeding and mudding signs; how to understand the camouflage techniques the fish employs; and how tide, temperature, and weather all affect fish movement. He instructs how to target cruising and tailing fish, which striping techniques work best, how to set your drag, and the most effective ways to strike and fight bonefish.

An especially crucial section instructs the reader on fly selection and design, with color plates of more than seventy patterns tied by some of the most innovative fly developers, including Carl Richards, Craig Mathews, Jack Gartside, Jeffrey Cardenas, Lefty Kreh, Ben Estes, Tim Borski, Jim Orthwein, and and a number of others.
