"How often have your tried to describe the exact colour of a favourite fly of your ...how often have purchased the same fly at different shops and found them unalike in color: How do you know for sure that the colour described in the tying article you've just read will be the colour the author had in mind when it comes out of the vice? From now on, there will be no question! In [this book] you will find a complete set of standard colour charts." The authors also break down how colours work into measured combinations of the three primary colours, "a whole new approach to colour as it relates to the trout's world." "In addition ...Al and Bob tell you how the trout sees that underwater morsel you've put before him. They tell you when colour is critical to your presentation and when it's not so critical. Tying instructions, dressings and blending formulas for the complete Compara-series [as well as] an extensive discussion of materials, hooks and tying tools." A pioneer in the field of precise use of colour in fly tying.
