Overview

Do It Yourself Bonefishing is the authoritative guide written for DIY anglers targeting bonefish on the fly. Divided into easy-to-reference sections, this book will help you tackle the why, where, and how of self-guided bonefishing. Informed by twenty years of experience on the flats, Rod Hamilton and Kirk Deeter describe the allure of matching wits with one of fly fishing’s most elusive targets and discuss the reasons why more and more fly fishermen are seeking the challenge of catching bonefish without the aid of a guide. Do It Yourself Bonefishing is packed with useful tips to help all levels of fly fishermen locate and catch more of one of the world’s premier gamefish. Learn stalking strategies, how to spot bonefish, appropriate fly selection, and where to find the fish.

As you plan your bonefishing trip, the authors’ destination chapters and “Seven-Day Sample Trip” itineraries suggest where to fish, how to get there, and places to stay. Included is a list of more than 300 individual bonefish hotspots located throughout the tropics, complete with maps and tips specific to the flat or creek system. Within the “Spousal Rating” section are Hamilton’s opinions on how suitable the destination is for nonfishers; the “Nonfishing Activities” section highlights things to do when not fishing. Whether you need help deciding where to go or simply desire greater success while wading on your own, Do It Yourself Bonefishing is where you should start.

Editorial Reviews

Jerry Gibbs
This is the one we’ve been waiting for—the graduate course in that needle-threading of tactical skills and planning needed to truly score in this increasingly popular game of on-your-own bonefishing. This angler’s only wish is that he’d written it twenty years ago.
Chris Santella
DIY Bonefishing opens up a host of opportunities that all my fishing buddies can enjoy in addition to the joys of stalking and hooking bonefish all on our own.
Conway Bowman
This book is the complete guide for finding and stalking bonefish without the help of a guide or lodge. Rod has written the dollarwise bonefishing bible, and I am so pleased he has!
Tom Bie
DIY bonefishing is like completing a handyman project around the house that’s just a bit over your head—it takes twice as long as hiring someone else, but it’s also twice as gratifying. In this book, Rod’s gear is minimal, his advice is practical, and his enthusiasm evident and contagious. Do It Yourself Bonefishing will help increase your odds.
Vince Tobia
Rod’s book captures the essence and spirit of DIY bonefishing. It’s not about the numbers of fish caught but the thrill and excitement of exploring new areas and putting the pieces of the DIY bonefishing puzzle together on your own.
Vince Stegura
What you get in DIY Bonefishing is a very honest manual for the DIY adventurer that can (and should) be read in its entirety, as well as kept in a place of easy access for reference. There really isn’t a better written option in regards to the subject matter. It’s all here, in detail, and extremely honest and accurate. Rod just wrote the DIY Bonefishing blueprint, which, as anyone who has done it themselves can tell you, is worth more than its weight in gold.
Field & Stream
Hamilton eloquently writes about the ethos and motivation of bonefishing on your own…The text is engaging and conversational. There's no ego, no wasted words. Just honest, genuine passion for the flats.The advice is straightforward and easy to understand.Moreover, this is the ticket to help any serious angler who doesn't have the means or interest in paying several thousand dollars to visit bonefish Nirvana to find success.
