This 96-page, 6 x 9" paperback book contains everything you need to know about selecting the most productive trout patterns from the mind-boggling range available; and when and how to fish them. The author believes the sport of fly fishing need not be a high-tech preoccupation reserved for those with advanced degrees. Rather he presents fly fishing as a people-friendly pastime, whether enjoyed in solitude or shared with family and friends. His other books include Flyfishing the Rockies, Hooked on Flies, and Creekcraft. Thoroughly enjoyable reading.

Blue Chip Flies by William C. Black
This Review by Stephen J. Bodio appeared in Fly Rod & Reel, Nov/Dec. 1995
(Grand Junction, CO: Centennial, 1995: 96 pp. paperback) Four useful paperbacks. The most novel is William Black's Blue Chip Flies, another modest and innovative little book from Centennial Publications. What I like about it is how it explains, rather than lists, popular and useful flies; as the author says, "the kind of folks who become fly fishers tend not to approach life superficially, even its amusements." He talks about carrying enough flies for worstcase scenarios (enough good, proven flies, not just a random assortment ". . . of course the one that catches fish will soon be gone, just like the tastiest chocolates in the sampler.") He calls the Royal Wulff "Superfly" and the Woolly Worm a "plumber's helper." Not just for beginners; I'm keeping it. -- Publisher Comments
