Overview


This brand-new how-to manual for fly tying enthusiasts is a book with a real difference! Most of the 200 patterns shown and described in these pages have never appeared anywhere in print until now. More important, all have proved effective, because all were created by professional fishing guides who now have agreed to share their secrets with the author and expert fisherman Tony Lolli. These are the flies that working guides give customers when fishing is unusually difficult. These flies catch fish when nothing else works. Tony Lolli opens his comments on this book's valuable collection with general instructions on fly-tying techniques. He devotes the rest of the book to photos and detailed instructions for tying each of these very special flies. He separates flies into two general categories:

For freshwater species: Trout of all varieties, Atlantic Salmon, Pacific Salmon
For saltwater species: Striped bass, Bluefish, Bonefish, Marlin, Sailfish, and others

Readers will also find information on how, when, and where each fly is fished. Every fly in this book is shown in both life-size and in enlarged color photos so that fisherman can examine them in detail. 450 color illustrations in total.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Who knew flies were so photogenic? Divided into freshwater and saltwater directories, over 200 fly patterns are described and demystified by their creators in this glossy, beautifully assembled tome. Organizing the work in a user-friendly manner, freelance writer and fly fisherman Lolli provides many elements to supplement the entries, including a guide to basic tools, a "Useful Information" section that includes "Starting and Finishing Techniques," a glossary, and a materials glossary. A section titled "Fly Tier Information" is particularly interesting as it includes the countries of origin and websites of the experts. VERDICT Meticulously crafted, this guide is sure to be enjoyed by fly fisher folk at all levels. A colorful inclusion for large public library collections.
