This book is addressed to new-comers to the art and craft of fly-tying and assumes no prior knowledge or experience. It starts by introducing readers to the tools, materials and basic techniques before going on to give clear, foolproof instructions for tying fifty tried and tested patterns ranging from classic dry and wet trout flies to nymphs, hairwings and streamers as well as a selection of salmon flies suitable for use in all conditions. step-by-step photographs showing each stage in the process and the book's spiral binding means that it will lie open on the bench for easy reference, leaving both hands free. As well as suggesting the quarry and conditions for which each fly is suitable, the author also provides advice on how, and at what depth, it should be fished.
