Additional Information


"An encyclopaedic guide to the huge range of flies now being used by the modern fly-fisherman, whether they are fishing for the traditional quarry of salmon and trout, chasing bonefish on the tropical flats of the Caribbean, or stalking pike in the cold fens of East Anglia, and everything in between. It not only describes every type of fly used to catch all types of fresh- and saltwater fish, it also describes every type from every country that is currently used. This unique combination allows the fisherman to select flies that may have never been used in their area, or never used to catch that species of fish, or perhaps both, and thus allow the fish to be offered something different." Dr Greenhalgh has enlisted the help of some of the world's best flytyers to illustrated this huge work. They include Stuart Bowdin, Mick Hall, Chris Hosker, Terry Jenner and Stevie Munn. Covers trout and grayling flies, streamers and bucktails, flies for salmon sea-trout and steelhead, flies for pike and other freshwater predators, and flies for saltwater flyfishing.
