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.
