Not only does he have a critical and a creative mind, he is the best communicator in fly tying today, with a neighborly, engaging writing style and clear, detailed photography that will drag you kicking and screaming into the world of better fly tying." -- Ross Purnell, editor, Fly Fisherman magazine
