“I remember when I was first bonefishing and seeing fish come over and look at my fly and ‘refuse’ it... and thinking this guy Dick Brown was crazy for saying those were missed takes. Lo and behold he was right ... the difference between an amateur bonefisher and a good one is catching the fish [that] you don't feel the "eat" on. Listen to Mr. Brown and the learning curve is much shorter.” —Dan Hall, veteran flats angler and creator of Hall’s Perfect Crab and Hall’s Magic Mantis
