Regarded by many as one of the best and simplest instruction books currently available. Well illustrated with excellent artwork, for easy-to-follow instructions.
This book uses the latest techniques in computer-generated drawings to show the reader exactly how to create an artificial fly, step-by-step. Clearer than photography, more life-like than drawings, the graphic instructions show, by subtle emphasis and exaggeration, precisely what to do. Included are all the basic techniques for applying thread, feather and fur to the hook, and more sophisticated methods such as parachute hackling, using the dubbing loop and hairwinging.
