Bonefishing has long been one of Chris’s favorite quarry and he ties and explains the techniques to tie these patterns as well as some tips for fishing bonefish in the tropics. All of the bonefish patterns have been used by Chris for a number of years with great success and are those that he has in his fly box in a variety of weights and also they have been thoroughly tested in Belize, Mexico, and the Bahamas by a number of his angling friends with considerable acclaim. The deer hair crab is more appropriate for permit but can be downsized for bonefish. With the exception of the deer hair crab, all of these patterns are quick ties requiring inexpensive materials. The deer hair crab is a more challenging pattern, which requires the use of deer hair and making the legs. After tying a few of these wonderful crab flies they do become easier to complete. Don’t leave home with a few permit patterns in your fly box.
