I’m late to the bonefishing game, really. A lot of the luminaries of the sport are folks I still haven’t heard of… if they missed the internet revolution, I likely missed them. Slowly, I’m coming to understand who some of the big players are, and why.
If, like me, you are new to bonefishing, one guy you likely have heard of is Dick Brown. He’s written two seminal works, Fly Fishing for Bonefish and Bonefish Fly Patterns. I have the former and now I have to find the latter. There are basically three books that get recommended to new bonefish anglers, Dick’s, then there is Fly-Fishing for Bonefish (I have this one) by Chico Fernandez and Dr. Aaron Adams, and the last of the holy bonefish trinity is Bonefishing! (don’t have this one) by Randall Kaufmann (this last one is hard to get your hands on).
Dick Brown has his own website and on that website he has a section with tips. Tips from Dick Brown… that sounds worth taking a look at.
