Even though this book by one of the greatest realistic fly tiers has been available for awhile, we finally got a copy and boy was it worth the wait. This amazing combination of text, drawings and photographs epitomizes how far the art of fly tying can be pushed. After seeing many of Paul’s flies in several magazines, it is nice to see first hand how these incredible patterns are created. We have never seen the amount of detail when it comes to the step-by-step instructions like this before.
Paul does a wonderful job of taking the reader through each phase of the particular flies construction. The 265 page book includes Mayfly, Damselfly, Stonefly, Hopper, and Beetle patterns plus many more as well as a great introduction and discussion about materials and tools. This book will no doubt become a highly sought after collectors piece in the future.
