More About the Author
He has broken several world records over the years, most notably the largest redfish taken with a fly rod, at 42 pounds 5 ounces (I.G.F.A. record on 12 pound test tippet), and he was the third person (1982) to land a white marlin on a fly rod.
After a few years in the corporate world, Chico quit in 1973 to become involved in the outdoors field full time. He writes articles and books, and does casting demonstrations, personal appearances, consulting, and promoting. He talks personally with many boaters, fly fishermen, and other anglers each year.
Chico has written hundreds of articles, which have appeared in most major outdoor publications in the U.S. and abroad, as well as three books on fishing. His video, "Chico and the Kids," which teaches kids how to fly fish, won the Outdoor Writers' Association of America's Award in 1980. He has appeared on fishing programs on ESPN, and currently has five videos on the market (in English, Spanish, and Japanese) on fly fishing, fishing with kids, and casting tackle.
Chico has consulted for many national and international firms on fishing and fly fishing tackle, skiffs, and canoe designs. He is a charter member of the Board of Governors, Emeritus status, and lifetime member of the Federation of Fly Fishers; Director at Large of the Florida Council Board; advisor to The Snook Foundation; lifetime member of the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust [BTT]; and the IGFA representative for Miami. He also serves on the editorial board of MidCurrent.

The beginning section on bonefish biology, by Dr. Aaron Adams, strengthens the book immensely, giving it the depth of scientific authority. Don't skip this section - it provides much interesting information that will come back to you as you read the rest of the book. It's presented with the same clarity and authority Dr. Adams exhibited in his own book, A Fisherman's Coast.
Word of warning - if you don't want to feel that you must be on the flats now, barefoot, looking for tailing bonefish, don't read this book.
Truly one of the best "how to" books on any subject I've read.
Ive flyfished all my life for most species but fishing for bones is another world of fishing and you don't just get lucky. The book is almost necessary for a person to understand and catch fish. It must be hard to write a book for it cause there is a lot of things to cover. Only negative thing I can say is I think the book was to thorough is some areas and he lost me. I'd just skip to what I needed to know and it was great. He did a great job though and I know I wouldn't have even fished the right spots if it wasn't for the book. I might not have even landed a bonefish on the whole trip
