GMflyfish Thanks for the picture Walt.
Boy, I don't know about that one with the pink head and bright chartreuse. Though I have caught a couple of bones on a puff with a bright chartreuse head, bead chain eyes.
I do like rabbit fur, but I don't recall using fox in any of the salt water patterns I've tried.
I'm probably not going to put much effort into bonefish flies until I have some scheduled opportunity to use them.

Swalt Lee,
I read read the original Fly Fishing for Bonefish before my first bonefishing trip in 92. Great book. I would have been lost without it. I also got the second edition of it.

I have only messed around with variations on the Big Ugly. Here are a few I tied. Upper left is closest to the Big Ugly. Just added some rabbit to it behind the wing. The others I used rabbit and fox for the most part.

FLGator I too think it is a great resource and glad to have bought a copy. Nice addition to my library for sure.

GMflyfish Hey Walt,
Hope you are going to put up some pictures after you finish tying creations based on Brown's book. I should try to get a look at the volume.

LeeG I've narrowed down my list to 12 new patterns that I want to bring down with me this year. It is a great read. I bought that and his updated bonefishing book. You can't help but become a better fisherman if you read his work.

Bonefish Fly Patterns - Second Edition

Received a copy of Dick Browns book for Christmas. I have had a hard time putting it down. To me its a must have for anyone interested not only in tying bonefish flies but in catching bonefishing. Its much more than just fly tying instructions. It gives you the components that make a good bonefish fly in most all conditions, how to fish them, thoughts of the men that tied them and much more. I rarely tie from set patterns but this book has given me lots of ideas I want to try out and incorporate into the flies I do tie.
