FLIES: For bonefish, proven patterns, such as Gotchas, Crazy Charlies, Bonefish Bitters or others, in a variety of colors and weights tied on No. 6 or No. 8 hooks work well. A nice selection of permit crabs, tied in the standard color patterns and weights on No. 2 to 1/0 hooks, are similarly required. For tarpon, any of the classic streamer patterns in proven colors tied on 1/0 to 3/0 hooks should tempt plenty of fish.
