Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


It is the artificial fly that links the angler to his prey. To master the craft of fly tying and to recognize successful patterns and use them to effect in different waters and conditions are challenges that face every fishman. Deceiving nature with artificial fur and feathers is the ultimate test of anglers everywhere. This practical book is divided into two main sections. The first, Fly Tying Materials and Techniques, offers secrets to successful fly tying, with comprehensive step-by-step sequences showing how to tie some of the best-known flies, while insider's knowledge will allow you to experiment with your own patterns. The second section, The Fly Selector, features 100 flies beautifully photographed in their finished form with detailed and expert information for every fly, including measurements and the materials needed to make each one. With 250 clear and colourful photographs and clear diagrams, this expert book, written by a life-long fishing enthusiast, will be a invaluable practical reference for fishermen of all abilities.
