Learn everything you need to know from the basics to the advanced.
From the book..."The object of this book will be throughout its entirety to teach in a practical manner the art of Fly Tying in all its branches. The principles used, and the methods of construction employed, are those used by the professional fly-tier who practices fly-making for the sake of art, and tries to achieve with each finished fly, a masterpiece.
Only the making of flies of the very highest quality and most durable construction will be attempted. To those who are anticipating the making of their own flies for the first time, there is the opportunity to exercise one's ingenuity in the creation of new patterns. To prolong your fishing seasons throughout the long winter evenings, in the confines of your own den, where, with a supply of fur, feathers and tinsel, can be enjoyed a profitable, artistic and pleasant hobby."
