The Basic Manual of Fly-tying
Fundamentals of ImitationBook - 2007
A classic is back…updated! For 30 years, this seminal work has been the best-selling introduction to the sport. While this newly revised third edition includes invaluable updates in tying materials, methods, and patterns, the fundamental reason for its long-term success remains intact: there's simply no better presentation of the basics. It's packed with insider tips for every style and tying method, along with dozens of ties shown in full-color drawings--which are actually better than photos for clarifying the details. Chapter by chapter, the guide covers tools; materials; insects and their life cycles; streamers, terrestrials, and attractors; fly-tying classes and kits; and much more. No fisherman should "fly" without it!
