Over the past 7 years, Greg Senyo developed an overwhelming customer base through his company Steelhead Alley Outfitters; the demand for many of his patterns has surpassed the supply. Because of this, he has generously written a step-by-step how-to guide to tying your own flies. Modern Steelhead and Salmon Flies will highlight 35 of the author’s signature and proven steelhead flies used across the Great Lakes, Pacific North West, Canada, Alaska – also Atlantic salmon and Lake Run Browns, tapping into and keeping up with today’s current and growing synthetic material market. Each fly design will be a visual and simulating guide through high resolution and complete step-by-step photography. Modern Steelhead and Salmon Flies will teach you how to work with synthetic materials that include the use of shanks, heavy wire, fish skulls and fish Masks, synthetic hackles and hair, new age flash, while also incorporating beads/metal components, forming and using new epoxy techniques, Copic air brushing and dying techniques, and a host of signature synthetic fibers and dubbings. With these new skills, the potential and creative possibilities of each fly-tying project will be greatly increased, while still maintaining traditional fly-tying disciplines.

"The most innovative fly tier I have ever known." --Lefty Kreh on Bob Popovics "Bob Popovics has brought more creative ideas to the table in the last two decades than any other tier out there." --Dan Blanton This is the first and only book available on the tier whose techniques with epoxy and silicone revolutionized saltwater fly tying. The family of flies Bob Popovics developed over the last three decades (dubbed "Pop Fleyes," a spelling that incorporates part of his last name with the fact that eyes are a prominent feature in their design) have proven devastatingly effective for stripers, bluefish, false albacore, and many more species. This book goes beyond the basic recipe format to provide the thinking behind Popovics's pattern development, a guide to key tying techniques, and detailed notes on how to fish Pop Fleyes most effectively.
