    This is a fantastic guide to thousands of flies with their associated recipes. The authors offer a good mix of classic and modern flies. The photos are great as well. However, if you're looking for a step-by-step guide to tying each fly, this book does not offer it. I use this book for ideas on new flies to tie.
