Editorial Reviews

The New York Times
“Lavishly illustrated…Often enlivened with historical tidbits.”
Library Journal
Leiser, a highly respected author and flytier, provides over 1000 patterns for the construction of artificial flies in this amply illustrated book, which will become the standard in the field. In addition to ingredients, Leiser provides frequent notes on alternate materials and techniques, and/or the history of the pattern. Libraries with minimal demand can stand pat if they hold Terry Hellekson's Popular Fly Patterns (LJ 3/15/77). For a quality flytying collection, consider Leiser; with Helen Shaw's classic Fly-Tying (Nick Lyons, 1987. reprint), it constitutes a basic collection on this craft. Outdoor Life Book Club selection. David J. Panciera, Westerly P.L., R.I.
