This new dictionary of trout and grayling flies is, quiet simply, the most comprehensive and up to date reference work on the subject. Over 900 popular fly patterns from Britain and Ireland are featured: the majority are traditional and widely used but some are regional specialities whose reputation has spread beyond the place of origin. From Blue-winged Olive to Foam-headed Muddler, the selection includes dry and wet flies and will appeal to purist and modernist alike.
The author has made a point of consulting the creators of many of the patterns for their own views and comments. Of the 433 fly patterns illustrated in colour over 200 have actually been tied by their inventors.
This book is the ultimate source of information and inspiration for both flyfishers and flytyers.
"I have nothing but praise for the dedicated content of this book. It represents exceptional value for money and will find its way on to every serious flytyer's bookshelf and bench"
"One of the major gaps in contemporary angling publishing has at last been filled – and superbly too"
"Destined to become indispensable for the modern flytying fisherman and a source of inspiration for years to come"
