Here is a book for fly tiers, beginners and experts alike, that provides foolproof directions for tying all types of flies. Unlike specialized books that describe particular types or styles of flies, this book covers them all—both freshwater and saltwater flies. Dry flies for trout, streamers for tarpon, hair bugs for bass: you will find them here. Eric Leiser teaches the basic methods for tying standard dries, hair dries, parachute dries, hackleless flies, wets, nymphs, streamers, Jassids and other terrestrials, and more. Whether you're a seasoned tier looking for specific advice, or you're brand new to the craft and just want the fundamentals, this book is a complete education.
