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