Synopsis: A Milestone in angling literature: the most complete and practical pattern book ever compiled for the fly tyer and angler, a lavishly illustrated catalogue of recipes for the most effective and popular flies that are fished in fresh and salt water. Drawing on the designs and innovations of the best fly tyers past and present, Eric Leiser, a master fly tyer and teacher and author of the immensely popular Complete Book of Fly Tying, gives us a consistent representation and interpretation of more than 1,000 classic and contemporary fly patterns. Here, as well, is all the information (hook sizes, materials, etc.) needed in order to dress the pattern in the manner intended by its originator, with professional tips for solving specific problems. Anyone who can tie a simple dry or wet fly will need this book.
-- More than 1,000 patterns for all manner of surface and subsurface flies (including dry flies, terrestrials, caddis flies, midges, spinners, parachute flies, stoneflies, wet flies, emergers, and nymphs, as well as attractor patterns and bait fish imitations) that are fished for trout, salmon, steelhead, bass, tarpon, bonefish, and many others
-- More than 400 black-and-white drawings and photographs showing new tricks and improved procedures for solving specific tying problems
-- More than 130 silhouette drawings showing the correct proportions of flies
-- Twelve plates in full color, showing more than 300 flies (including photographs showing how certain dry flies appear to the trout)
-- A useful discussion of different types of hooks
-- A glossary of materials, including the very latest innovations (what it is, whether it "breathes," floats, or sinks; where it can be obtained; what can be substituted for it)
-- A glossary of fly-tying terms
-- A list of dealers for fly-tying materials
-- A bibliography of fly-tying books
An indispensable reference and a classic work of its kind, The Book of Fly Patterns is a must for every professional and amateur fly tyer.
