    I purchased a "cut rate" fly tying kit and guide. This book helped me understand why my first flies were such a mess. After reading this guide I managed to make a fly that resembled the pictures to an acceptable to me degree

    I actually have not started fly tying yet. I bought this book to do some research and reflect on whether or not I really want to invest in this. It offers great pictures and illustrations, and does a good job in wetting your appetite. It was not a bad investment for the price.

    Exactly What I Wanted - 2/6/2013
    By: from Franklin,VA

    Exactly what I wanted but as a beginner more pictures of the various materials would be helpful. with that exception the book is beautifully presented. I am 85 years young and particularly enjoy your fly fishing equipment.
