Fly Tying: Proven Flies for the Pacific Northwest (Paperback)


Special Order

It is easy for the novice fly-fisher to become overwhelmed by the proliferation of items and gear that can be used to create artificial flies. Fly Tying- Proven Flies for the Pacific Northwest, provides a simple overview of the basic equipment, materials and patterns used for chironomids, wet flies, and dry flies, as well as those for steelhead and salmon.

His fly-tying methods, taught by the late fishing legend Earl Anderson, do not use a whip finisher tool for making half hitches, but rather a one-hand half hitch, creating flies that rarely unravel. Every fly in this book has been successfully tested by the author to such an extent that he is confident the reader will achieve success. Focusing on established flies that have years of proven success in the Pacific Northwest region, this book provides a combination of instruction as well as life lessons and stories accumulated over decades, providing both a useful and enjoyable read.
