What a great book. I really wish that i had this when starting to tie as it covers a huge range of techniques and doesnt skip over things that might be obvious to an experienced tier. If you are just starting you really should pick this up. Even for more experienced tiers this is a really valuable resource that illustrates a wide variety of techniques through detailed step by step tying instructions. Definitfely a classic that belongs in every fly tiers library.
