Details

An excellent new book of innovative streamer patterns illustrated throughout with superb colour photographs. Greg Senyo is the originator of numerous fly patterns, all constructed with modern, synthetic materials, particularly the flashier ones. Senyo has developed a solid trade in these patterns with his company, Steelhead Alley Outfitters, and demand outstrips supply. Senyo has written this book by popular demand. It is constructed with two purposes in mind; firstly, to "teach you how to work with synthetic materials that include the use of shanks, heavy wire, fish skulls and fish masks, synthetic hackles and hair, new age flash, while also incorporating beads/metal components, forming and using new epoxy techniques, Copic air brushing and dying techniques, and a host of signature synthetic fibers and dubbings." And secondly, to give a useful selection of fly patterns which have been proven on the water, viz, "35 of the author's signature and proven steelhead flies used across the Great Lakes, Pacific North West, Canada, Alaska - also Atlantic salmon and lake run browns, tapping into and keeping up with today's current and growing synthetic material market. Each fly design [is] a visual and stimulating guide through high resolution and complete step-by-step photography." "His creations are deceptively simple masterpieces that fuse tradition with progressive genius... [Senyo] has adapted an amazing approach to presenting the fly for steelhead and salmon from the Great Lakes to any destination in the entire world where you may find such fish." (Matt Supinski). "In Greg's patterns there's colour, flash and vision. Moreover, there's a completeness, a unity that comes from an attentiveness to detail that... transcends their role as fish-catching tools." (Dave Karczynski).
