Called the ghost of the flats, the silvery bonefish is the holy grail of flats fishing. Its speed in the water & chameleon-like color make it the ultimate challenge to catch, & because of its elusiveness, much of the joy of bonefishing is in searching for the fish. Finding bonefish from a skiff & while wading are thoroughly covered, as is catch & release. Details on the bonefish’s environment & his food provide the essential background, & you’ll learn what tackle & flies to take & how to cast efficiently in the flats.
