This exceptionally full and innovative book – with more than 600 helpful photographs and lucid instructions for tying dozens of fly patterns – will be treasured by all serious fly tyers. It represents a lifetime of creative tying and teaching by one of America’s most versatile fly tyers.There are chapters on scores of patterns, each requiring different techniques, from miniflies to “Drakeburgers,” and thoughtful presentations of the best ways to tie Wulff patterns, a variety of nymphs, old Ray Bergman brook-trout flies, flies with foam, flies for salmon, Alaskan patterns, and much, much more.That the author is such a canny and original tyer, with many years as a popular fly-tying instructor, assures a book from which all tyers – new and highly experienced – will find fresh methods and techniques of inestimable value (not the least of which are to be found in the special chapter called “Dick’s Tricks”).
