"A beginner's guide to the art of fly tying (and fly tying is indubitably an art) has been a long-felt want upon many angling bookshelves. The author is a professional fly dresser, and as such is well qualified to write on a subject which grows in popularity daily. His aim is not so much to instruct his readers in the way of tying a specific fly, but to teach them how to make the basic pattern. From a knowledge of these rudiments hundreds of other specimens become available, through the simple process of ringing the changes with the materials used. Geoffrey Bucknall sets out the essential pieces of fly tying equipment and tells the newcomer what to look for when stocking the fly tying bench - the feathers, tinsels and silks which are most commonly used. These form the basis from which patterns by the score can be readily made. [This book] will undoubtedly prove an invaluable aid for newcomers and old hands alike".
