Based on more than three years of collecting and study in Montana, Michigan, Idaho and the Yellowstone National Park, resulting in more than thirty new spinner fly patterns. "All the flies ...are quick and easy to tie from readily available materials and with a new winging method". Includes instructions for the author's dun/spinner combination fly and a set of 'double flies' consisting of a pair of small flies riding tandem on the same (larger) hook. This first edition was privately published by the author.
