Although there are thousands of existing bonefish patterns, spend any amount of time around dyed-in-the-wool bone fishermen and you will find that that the Pareto principle (also known as the 80-20 rule) definitely holds true. Only a small assortment of proven patterns earn a spot their fly boxes, no matter where they intend on fishing. Friends, guides, travel literature and most importantly personal on the flats experience have narrowed my list of must have bonefish flies down to 7 essential patterns... in no particular order. Ververka's Mantis Shrimp, Cownes Bonefish Scampi, McVay's Gotcha, Owen's 90 Percenter, Chicone's Tranqu-Hill-izer and Bone Appetit and Ginevri's Avalon have all proven to be highly productive for Andros Island in the Bahamas. Understanding where the fly was intended to be fished, what factors led the designer to choose the materials he did, and why the pattern has evolved helps to give you the whole picture. Interviews with the fly's designer will give you a peek into the heads of some of these innovative tiers and should help you to understand how they think and create new patterns as well as gives you a insider's perspective, valuable insight, and hopefully encouragement to create your own unique patterns.

Although I am a bonefish super freak and a recovering tarpon junkie, snook are the species that haunt my thoughts and keep me up at night. Especially the big girls that lurk in hard to find place’s —way back in the mangrove creeks where there is barely enough room for a skiff, and casting through a tunnel of mangroves is tricky to say the least. The journey through these spider-laden labyrinths to the land of Jurassic Park-sized snook, is almost as exciting as the fishing because you just never know what you might see. It took me over 8 years to finally brake the 40" mark and get it on film. That being said, the bar has been raised and my yearning to catch an even bigger snook becomes stronger every season. Targeting big snook in the backwater takes some patience and persistence, and over the past decade, I have honed my techniques and paired my selection of flies down for this particular style of snook fishing. The patterns presented have been rigorously tested and have a confirmed track record for persuading educated snook in the mangrove creeks and backwaters of Florida. Whether you’re fishing lights at night, blind casting the bushes, or sight fishing floating fish … the detailed instructions and clear step-by-step photos in this book will ensure you have the know how needed to create flies that will best even the most educated of snook. Step-by-step tying instructions for tying “Flip’s Glades Deceiver”, “Brita’s Flatwing Glass Minnow”, “Chicone's Sailfin Molly”, “Platinum Pilchard”, “Midnight Special”, “Hollow Point Minnow”, and “Reloaded Tuscan Bunny” Eight Effective Patterns for Catching Backcountry Snook. This book is a 191-page paperback illustrated with ultra-hi resolution images. Insights and interviews from saltwater fly tiers, guides and guru's including: Flip Pallot, Tim Borski, Capt. Steve Bailey, and Brita Fordice.

Each year is a little different, but typically around late April or early May the snook start their annual migration from the rivers, creeks and backwater estuaries to the gin clear water and sandy beaches to spawn. The massive funnel of fish disband into small pods or strings of individuals and cruise up and down the shoreline in knee-deep water. These ghost-like shadows drive anglers crazy violently busting up rafts of glass minnows and white bait with reckless abandonment. When the water is clear, seeing 30-40" fish is a frequent occurrence, and over the last 10 seasons of chasing snook, I have honed my techniques and refined my selection of flies down to just the key essentials required for hoodwinking this exceedingly erudite fish. The pattens presented have been rigorously tested and have a confirmed track-record for persuading copious numbers of scholarly snook. This selection of flies will ensure you have the entire water column covered and give you the ability to "Match the Minnows" size and location in the water column, no matter where you are fishing. Thanks to the help of my fly tying friends, I will teach you how to tie the Captiva Cannibal, Strawboss, Petticoat Streamer, Dirty Squibbster, Crystal D, Neon Knight, Lightsaber Pilchard, and Gibby's DT Special. * Detailed step-by-step instructions for tying 8 proven snook flies essential for catching Snook from the beach.
