More credible information than most could ever hop
Reviewer: A viewer from Catawissa, PA US
Think of any technique that has been used to tie flies since the dawn of the sport up until the time of publication... it's in this book. A whopping great volume, there is likely more information contained within the covers of this book than most amateur tiers will ever get around to using. One of the best things about it is that flipping through the pages every so often gets the old creative juices flowing. Many are the times that I have glanced over a technique and suddenly looked up in epiphany with a thought about how to tie something "better" for the local waters; at that point I close the book and head for the vise. As another reviewer commented, this book could easily replace several others that focus on tying techniques; it's simply that good.
Should be required when you buy a vise!

This is hands down the best book out there! Everything you could ever possibly want to know. I have been tying for 6 years now and I still come back to it. It is a MUST have for any fly tyer.
Reviewer: A viewer from Santiago, RM CL
I've been tying for about 6 years. I learned by myself, browsing the internet for videos, online classes, recipes, etc. For that reason, lots of techniques remained obscure to me. This book came to fill the gapes of those techniques.
I knew the ook was good, because I had read lots of recommendations over the internet, but the book is expensive, so it took long to convince myself to spend the money. I'm happy to have the book now, but should had bought it before.
Possibly the best fly tying book out there
Reviewer: A viewer from Mena, AR US
You may balk at the price... That is, until you start thumbing through the book. If you're just starting out, or even if you're a 20 year veteran fly tyer, you'll find this volume indispensable. It details, with words and expert photography, just about every tying technique there is. If you're having trouble mounting hair-wings or winding hackles just right, you'll be able to find a number of ways to accomplish each of these task with professional results. You won't find any fly recipes or step-by-step walk-throughs on tying a specific pattern, but if you're like me, you've likely already spent hundreds of dollars on "lesser" books with all this info. This fantastic book is like having a seasoned master tyer peering over your shoulder at the tying bench. A must for serious tyers.
