About this product
- DescriptionThis essential book on fly tying will teach anyone how to tie flies. All the important techniques are illustrated with color photographs, from starting the thread on the hook to whip finishing. The book lays the basic ground work by fully explaining simple tying techniques, and then progresses to detailed tying instructions for some of the most popular, modern patterns. How to choose and prepare the correct material, and all the necessary tying steps for each fly, are detailed in superb, large, color photographs. Even if you have previous tying experience, you'll be able to tie dries, nymphs, streamers, saltwater offerings, and bass bugs after just a few sessions with this book. The tier is then advised how to progress to similar patterns using the same basic techniques. Also included is a huge reference of fly patterns--more than four hundred flies from the Orvis catalog are shown in full color, along with their tying recipes and proportions for each one. This book, calling on the Orvis Company's vast resources and teaching experience and written by an author whose name is synymous with Orvis, is sure to become the bible for fly tyers of all skill levels.
