About this title


Designing Trout Flies" is a refreshingly new, idea book overflowing with practical information to help the fly fisher recognize that "just right fly"--for both opportunistically & selectively feeding trout. In addition to a thorough discussion of primary & secondary triggering characteristics of the fish's food organisms, there are stimulating & highly informed discussions on material selection, tying procedures, & fly designs. Detailed descriptions, region by region, of most used sizes & colors of flies are an invaluable aid to tying or buying the most effective imitations. Those who tie flies will additionally delight in the wealth of "why-to" & "how-to" information on Gary's highly successful, seminal fly designs, uniquely innovative tying tactics, & speed tying tips. Many illustrative anecdotes--drawn from 35 years of fly fishing--make the book fun to read & highly instructional as well. All of this in the clear, precise language that is Gary's trademark. Complementing & thoroughly illustrating the comprehensive text are 230 beautifully detailed drawings by Jason Borger. Sixteen full-color photo pages show the flies larger than life size. The carefully designed layout & extensive index make access to the contents swift & simple. Produced in the United States by master book craftsmen.
