You turn to the left, pointing your left foot at the target while simultaneously scanning for the fish. Next, you flip the fly from your hand into the water. While studying the 10 o'clock area, you begin to make a false cast. There he is at 50 feet and moving slowly - a bonefish! You drop the fly 10 feet in front of the fish and let it sink. The guide is steadying the boat. The bonefish continues to cruise along, stopping here and there blowing holes in the bottom, searching for food.
Your job now is to attract the bonefish to your fly. To do this you must impart some action into the fly. Keep the rod tip lowered, pointing at the fly. Now strip the fly toward you using the non-rod hand. Strip, strip, stop. Strip, strip, stop. Suddenly the bonefish turns and races over to see what it is that is running away from him. He stops just about on top of the fly, studying it intensely. Now you strip the fly once more. The bonefish's tail breaks the water's surface as he dives on the fleeing prey.
