Brown’s new book is a modern, clearly written treasure of fly construction, selection, and usage. I intend to devour it as avidly as I’d want a double digit bonefish to devour my fly.”Vic Gaspeny, veteran Florida Keys flats guide and IGFA fly-rod bonefish record holder (14lb 6oz bonefish)
The first edition of Bonefish Fly Patterns has always sat within arm's reach of my vise and I thought it always would. But with over 45 new patterns, the revised edition is sure to take the original's spot as the definitive guide to bonefish bugs.”Dave Skok, professional fly tier, author, photographer, and IGFA world record holder

From the Back Cover This new and revised edition of Bonefish Fly Patterns is the most comprehensive collection of bonefish flies ever published, describing 197 of the best bonefish patterns being tied and fished in the world today—with a full-color photograph for each and with nearly one of every four patterns new to this edition.
The patterns in these pages are from such world-class flats anglers and guides as Winston Moore, Jim Orthwein (four-time bonefish world record holder), Steve Huff, Harry Spear, Rick Ruoff, Del Brown, Barry and Cathy Beck, Lou Tabory, Tim Borski, Bob Clouser, Lefty Kreh, Tom McGuane, Yvon Chouinard, Craig Mathews, Vic Gaspeny, Dave Skok, Eric Peterson, Patrick Dorsy and Aaron Adams.
Each fly profile is listed with its creator’s authentic recipe and tying tips. Also included are tying sequences for important patterns, a discussion of design trends, a materials glossary, and a list of sources for materials, custom flies, and off-the-shelf patterns. Above all, though, this book is a practical guide—not only on how to tie flies but also on how to fish them. Author and expert angler Dick Brown describes fly selection for various destinations, habitats, and conditions, and advises anglers on how to present flies and what prey they imitate.
