About this title


This hands-on book documents 34 fly patterns in full-color, with step-by-step photographs and detailed text on what Royce Dam knows best—handling and preparing materials. While practicing the steps to tying these flies, you’ll learn the techniques Royce recommends to increase your tying speed and the quality of your finished flies. Useful techniques such as putting a drop of cement on the tie-in area of a hairwing demonstrate Royce’s no-nonsense, down-to-earth approach to problem solving. After a few lessons with Royce, you’ll be tying flies faster, more efficiently, and your flies will last longer. Includes Grizzly Hackle, the White Wulff, and the Pale Morning Dun Nymph.

About the Author:

Royce Dam has taught fly tying in fifteen states, as well as China and Bhutan. He is a well-known supporter of the Federation of Fly Fishers International, tying at every conclave since 1983. He lives in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.
