Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pictures! Just got this for my 11 y.o. who is interested in starting fly tying. The beautiful and abundant pictures go with the text. Love the explanations as well because not only does he need to learn technique but more than I can tell him about what flies when and where -- this book seems to cover that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good book I am a beginning tier and ordered the book awhile back, it was back ordered, which is understandable, so it took a couple of months to get in. I have scanned through it and I think it will be a big help.
