About this title

Synopsis:

Showcases the creations of twenty-three Atlantic salmon flytyers from the United States, Canada, Europe, and Japan, and includes interviews in which they discuss their inspiration and angling experiences

From Library Journal:

Flytyers, anglers, and collectors will find much to admire in this collection of essays by 23 renowned practitioners of the art of creating fishing lures primarily from fur and feathers. Atlantic salmon flies differ from most trout flies in that they aren't intended to imitate insects: rather, they are larger, more colorful, glitzier, unspecified representations that attract the "king of game fish" almost by daring to be miniature objets d'art . The color photographs are exquisite, and the essays by flytyers from the United States, Canada, Europe, and Japan are both informational and inspirational. A materials list for tying each fly follows the essays. This is highly recommended for libraries with regional interest or large angling collections.
