With a double-page spread devoted to each pattern, featuring step-by-step instructions in full colour, and ring-bound so that it will lie flat on the bench or table top beside the fly-tying vice, this is the ideal reference book for anglers who wish to tie their own versions of the most successful patterns in current use. Peter Gathercole starts with an introduction to fly-tying basics, materials, equipment and techniques. He divides the flies themselves into five categories: Dry Flies, Nymphs and Bugs, Wet Flies, Streamers, and Hairwings and cover patterns that have a proven success record in catching trout, salmon and grayling in rivers and lakes throughout the world. On each spread there is a key indicating which species the fly is designed to attract, a brief description of when and how it should be used, a full-colour photograph of the finished fly indicating the materials used for the body, rib, hackle, etc., the range of hook sizes for which the pattern is suitable and, on the facing page, easy to follow, step-by-step instructions for tying. A craft requiring patience, practice and the right instruction, this comprehensive guide has remained a highly popular choice among fly-fishermen since its original publication in 2003.

Mike Harding, broadcaster, comedian, experienced fly fisherman, and author of a monthly column in Fly Fishing & Fly Tying magazine, has written a guide to tying one of the most well-loved and beguiling traditions of fly: the Northern Spider. These designs of fly, conceived in the north of England around Bolton Abbey in the Yorksire Dales near Skipton, are renowned for being both simple to tie and excellent for catching fish. They are characterized by using brightly colored silk threads, and the feathers of birds like snipe, woodcock, and pheasant. Mike Harding covers some 50 variants of fly, as well as the techniques of tying and the history of the North Country tradition. The book features his own superb close-focus photography, and is laid out in the same style as The Fly-Tying Bible.

Learn to tie 17 popular nymphs, dry flies, and streamers. Master fundamental tying techniques in a series of practical lessons Charlie Craven's Basic Fly Tying is a modern course in fly-tying fundamentals covering the essential tools, materials, and techniques needed to tie a wide range of popular flies. With 1,000 photos, Craven covers cutting-edge techniques for the more tried-and-true classics, such as the Royal Wulff, Adams, and Hare's Ear, and shares innovative approaches to current patterns such as the Brassie, RS2, and Copper John. With clear, concise text, Craven provides tips and techniques from his over thirty years of tying flies for fly shops on Colorado's Front Range. This book is built on Craven's successful fly-tying classes, which start out with simple flies and work toward more complex patterns, all the while teaching techniques and introducing materials by tying popular patterns that catch fish in Eastern and Western streams. This series of lessons show how flies build on one another, enabling readers to tie a wide range of patterns simply by breaking them down into parts. Craven illustrates the progression with his meticulous directions to fingerbusters like Copper Johns, Stimulators, and Humpies. This book, which is sure to become a standard text for basic fly tying, covers 17 flies (including recipes for popular variations), including the Brassie, Black Beauty, RS2, Hare's Ear, Pheasant Tail, Prince Nymph, Copper John, Woolly Bugger, Elk Hair Caddis, Stimulator, Adams, Rusty Spinner, Parachute Blue-Winged Olive, X Comparadun, Royal Wulff, Humpy, and Goddard Caddis

The average fly fisher spends just 15.6 days per year on the water. Of course, few of us are fortunate enough to spend every day of every month casting into riffles, pools, and undercut banks in search of those finicky browns, brooks, rainbows, and cutthroats. Luckily, the diverse collection of gear in 365 Trout Flies provides some measure of solace to those legions of desk-bound fly fishers. Presenting enough flies to span the year, expert fly fisherman John van Vliet offers suggestions for the spectrum of salmonids fly fishers are most likely to encounter as well as the breadth of locations—from small, pastoral chalk streams to forested, free-stone rivers. Each spread depicts a group of three flies along with materials recipes, captions from the author detailing how and where to fish them, and interesting related historical facts. For ease of reference, the book is organized into five categories covering each of the major fly types—nymphs, dries, wets, streamers, and terrestrials—and is illustrated throughout with exclusive macrophotography of the flies themselves. The front matter and section openers are illustrated with gorgeous, scenic fly-fishing photos. From traditional stalwarts like the Adams, Light Cahill, Royal Wulff, and Hare’s Ear Nymph to more modern twists like synthetic inchworms, sand-encased caddis emergers, and the Chernobyl ant, John van Vliet’s 365 Trout Flies functions as both a practical how-to guide for the fly enthusiast and a handsome collection highlighting the art of these faux-entomological wonders.
