presentation is IMO the most important factor. After all, bonefish come onto the flats for just one reason and that is to feed. In my limited experience, they'll eat just about anything that is presented properly.

Now I fish bonefish mostly in Mexico and my favorite is a natural bunny gotcha with a little orange in it. There I prefer a size 4 because there are also a lot of dinnerplate permit around and they'll eat gotchas as well. Flats fishing in Mexico isn't near as challenging as it is in the Keys.....I kind of miss that....good luck.
This is the answer. Also remember that approach is just as important as presentation, but if you are hiring guides that isn't something that you will worry about as much. As for flies I like to have something tied on I would be confident enough to cast at a permit.
