Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fifty-one flies from around the world, all with proven track records
 
Every fly fisherman has personal "must-have" flies—flies that inspire confidence and work for them. This book offers the true story behind a range of fly patterns, as well as the correct dressings. Many of these flies will be appreciated already by other anglers but some will be less well-known. This book may help anglers to discover an old pattern that is nearly forgotten or one that has come from the other side of the world. There are plenty of less well-known patterns here, that are sure to find a place in the fly boxes of progressive, thinking anglers.

Synopsis:

Every fly fisherman has personal favorite flies that inspire confidence, many in common with a multitude of fellow anglers. But some will be less well-known because they are an old pattern that is nearly forgotten, or maybe they came from a far-off land. In this book, the author hopes that the selection of trout flies offered will be met with approval and that some of the less obvious patterns will find a place in some more fly boxes, perhaps those belonging to more adventurous anglers. Extensively researched, this guide includes the importance of the sedge, or caddis, in all their forms to fly-fishing around the world, and the growing understanding of the importance of midges to the diet of trout in rivers.
