The first book dedicated solely to bonefish and bonefish fishing. "Bonefish! The ghost of the warm-water flats, so wily that it must be stalked before the fishing battle can start, so strong that even a 5-pounder can take 200 yards of your line on its first run - the fish that many of the world's top anglers, whether they use spinning gear or flyfishing tackle, consider the king of gamefish. ...This book is an invitation to become a bonefish addict. It tells you where to find them - Florida, the Caribbean, the Bahamas - and how to catch them with live bait, lures, or flies. It explains how to select a guide... It discusses both skiff fishing and wading for bonefish... It recounts the history of bonefishing, and the book is salted with the firsthand accounts of some great fishermen - Lee Wulff, Joe Brooks, Ted Williams, and others." Chapters include:- Hooked by the bonefish; Bonefish characteristics; Bait, wiggle jig, and fly; Bonefish psychology; Sporting history of bonefish; Still-fishing, skiff fishing, and wading; Spinning tackle; Flyfishing tackle; Line; Guides good and bad; Guides in action; Some bonefishermen; Bonefish and salmon; A phantom bonefish; Bonefishing areas; Bonefish life cycle and structure; Eating bonefish; If I had only...
