In the last ten years, fly fishing has exploded as an international sport. This global guide to fly-tying features over 600 different flies from around the world, including all the newest fly patterns and the fishing techniques they involve. Hundreds of full-color illustrations show you what each fly looks like, and detailed tying instructions show you how to make them, including what kinds of feathers, hooks, and threads to use. You get fascinating facts about how and when the flies were invented and where they are used. Many of the names for the flies featured here give evidence of their international origins: Argentine Blonde, Chernobyl Crab, Fledermaus, Kenya Bug. Others are named for their target prey: Bonefish Puff, Permit Fly, Rainbow Mohawk, Tarpon Streamer. Still others such as Disco Mouse, Moose Turd, Rat-faced McDougal, and Sea-ducer, serve as reminders that the fly fishermen's colorful sense of humor and adventure is alive and well. 240 pages (125 in color), 7 1/2 x 9 3/4.
