    Concise starter and reference book

    Purchased this book after taking a fly-tying class. It effectively narrows down the seemingly large number of fly patterns into a number of 'essential' trout flies. Also contains helpful hints on water type to fish the flies and additional patterns to cover a wider range of insect species. This book is an absolute must for the beginner who feels like there are just too many patterns to choose from. You won't be disappointed.

    Great for the Newbie

    I starting tying flies about 8 months ago, and I was forced to learn from a book. I bought three others, but this was the best of the bunch because it teaches basic pattern that has 10 variation. A golden book and well worth the investment.
