Description

* Barr is the most successful designer of commercially distributed flies in the world* The Barr Emerger is an unrivaled pattern for western mayfly situations, and the Copper John has evolved into the most popular fly of the millennium* Learn Barr's methods for tying his favorite flies, with step-by-step instructions and clear color photos so even inexperienced tiers can create the Copper John, Barr Emerger, B/C Hopper, Tung Teaser, Slumpbuster, and more In Barr Flies, John Barr shares his "confidence" patterns, the flies that he carries with him at all times to cover nearly every scenario an angler might encounter on the water. When used at an appropriate time with a good presentation, they are guaranteed to catch fish. Barr tells how he developed each fly, gives tips on when and how to fish them, and explains how he fishes multiple-fly rigs with the Copper John as the center of a 3-fly system that optimizes fish-catching potential.
