9780004118055: The Flytier's Manual

Newcomers to the wonderful world of fly tying should look no further than The Fly Tier’s Manual for all their needs. Written by the incredibly talented Mike Dawes, who has been tying flies and fishing in Hampshire for decades and runs International Flies, largely considered one of the best manufacturers of commercially tied flies in the world, this book is a must-have for flyfishers of all skill levels, including the novice with an interest in the deeper parts of the fishing world.
Mike Dawes’s book contains three hundred line drawings and two hundred color photographs and covers nearly four hundred different varieties of fly patterns that include nymphs, dry flies, wet flies, lures, and streamers. The Fly Tier’s Manual also covers the basics of what materials you’ll need, what equipment to buy, and even the basics of how to fish with each of the ties that you’ll tie. This is a perfect textbook for new students, a great guide to an activity for fathers and sons to do together, and everything that an amateur needs to become a professional. Pair it with The Fly Tier’s Companion for the ultimate, expansive education in the proud tradition of fly fishing.

Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen. Our books for anglers include titles that focus on fly fishing, bait fishing, fly-casting, spin casting, deep sea fishing, and surf fishing. Our books offer both practical advice on tackle, techniques, knots, and more, as well as lyrical prose on fishing for bass, trout, salmon, crappie, baitfish, catfish, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
