xii, 273 pp. colophon Incorrect ISBN on copyright page. Book: Some faint minor foxing spots of foredge. OK, I'll do it. I'm calling this book an already overlooked classic. I had the pleasure of attending a seminar that he ran on this book in the early 80's. This book on every aspect about trout flies is a well penned tome on that will eventually be recognized in the same vein as Marinaro, Skues, and Halford. See also: Fishing the Dry Fly As a Living Insect by Leonard Wright. Even if you don't tie flies, this book will explain all the criteria for fly selection you should be aware of. View more info
