A new book of 16 new innovative patterns from Steve Thornton. This new volume is packed with new un-published tying techniques not yet seen by the flytyer, including new detached abdomen tying techniques, new legging techniques and "Hair Rig" abdomens. "Hair Rig" abdomens make small insects like hatching olives, duns and spinners, realistic. These new "Hair Rig" abdomens are easy to tie, yet very realistic and create a natural movement, just like the real insect. Steve shows you in high quality step by step photography how to make these exciting new tying techniques and patterns and more.
