Ten Effective Patterns for Abaco Bonefish

Although the count of bonefish patterns existing today numbers in the hundreds, not all of them will work interchangeably. Size, color, sink rate, hook color, with or without weed guards, and how hard they impact the water upon presentation … all these factors need to be taken into consideration when loading up your box. Like anything else, the Pareto principle (also known as the 80 20 rule) certainly holds true for bonefish flies. Only a small assortment of proven patterns earn a spot in my fly box, no matter where I intend on fishing. With each trip to Abaco, I do my best to narrow my focus and really key in on the prey items and behaviors of the fish that reside there. The proven patterns outlined in this book have been carefully selected, fine tuned, and rigorously tested. Tying and stocking your box with this comprehensive assortment of flies will ensure you are covered for just about anything the Abaco bonefish can throw at you … and the insight provided in the interviews will help you understand what factors need to be considered for creating and fishing your own bonefish flies.

Great book

As a fly tier I have many books on tying flies. I can honestly say this one of the best. Most books just give you a picture, pattern, and short explanation. Drew actually goes through the thought process and background along with great directions. I am looking forward to putting these patterns to use next year on Abaco.

Drew Chicone’s latest… Bonefish Flies Abaco

Having fished the marls from Abaco Lodge I can attest to the joys and challenges of fishing for big bones and permit in the Bahamas. Drew’s new book highlights some old favorite and new original patterns that are sure to help you succeed wherever bonefish inhabit. Drew draws inspiration from at least one famous name in saltwater flyfishing circles, none other than Chico Fernandez, and it shows. Well done Drew.

Bonefish Flies of Abaco

Excellent book as always. Enjoyed reading about each fly with the original Tyler. Would love to see a book on crab flies. Mike Collier

Infallible

I’ve been following Drew for a year or 2 now. His fly tying experience through trials & tribulations of inventing perfection has helped me as a fly tier tremendously. Although I may never get a chance to fish for bones in Abaco, I know for sure I can always learn a new technique from this book or any one of his others. Each fly “recipe” has a detailed description including detailed pictures and the history of the fly. I would recommend buying this book along with the others.
