Very comprehensive and complete text.

The chapters on biology and fish behavior gave one an insight that how complex the "hunt" for the bonefish can be.

Format: Hardcover
This book is one of the best nonfiction fishing books I've ever read. I'd recommend it to any flyfisher, even those who've never seen a bonefish. Chico Fernandez has an incredible amount of experience and knowledge about bonefish and flyfishing generally, and his writing is clear, interesting, and sometimes hilarious. He is careful to explain why he thinks a certain way about an issue, includes many examples, and isn't afraid to express uncertainty. All these are refreshing qualities in a genre dominated by those who typically issue piles of dogma, seemingly believing themselves to have risen above other ordinary fishing nuts, to the status of gods or celebrities. Chico reminds us it's just fishing, but damn, it's an unbelievably interesting and fun way to spend time.

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.

Format: Hardcover
I bought the book while planning an extended trip to Belize. While the book is somewhat Florida Centered, I found it extremely useful. The chapters on biology and fish behavior gave one an insight that how complex the "hunt" for the bonefish can be. In reading the book, I found many useful insights while still keeping me grounded in the fact that pursuit of flats fish is hard work. There is only so much that can be said about reels, lines and rods, but the references to how a slightly larger or smaller kit might work are useful. Overall I think that there is something for everyone in the book, and for those that already know it all, a nice book for the lodge....

Very comprehensive and complete text. The whole phase of the hunt for bones is covered in depth. The knowledge on the bonefishes habitat and behavior provided by Dr. Adams is full of information that keeps you thinking while on the flats. A must have text that reads easily cover to cover.

I have heard that this book is the Bible fo bone fishing and they were right. Chico lays out point by point details as to what to have in the boat and you're wade pack and what to carry on the plane and what to check as baggage.I feel like I hired a trip planner when I got this book. I will use this every time I stage a trip.
