The author/editor’s technique of interviewing experienced anglers and guides about how they fish and the flies they use lets him relate all this important information in a fun, conversational style. As a result of this unique method—blending fishing with fly tying—The Master’s Fly Box will have no direct competition; it will appeal to readers who both tie and fish, as well as those who do not tie their own flies but are seeking sound information about how and where to catch trout.
