RESERVOIR AND LAKE FLIES: FLY DRESSINGS AND FISHING TECHNIQUES. By John Veniard.

"A particular feature of flies for still water is that it is necessary to know not only how to dress them but how to fish them and it is here that this book will be especially useful, since in addition to the chapters by John Veniard, who is generally acknowledged as an able angler and a wonderful fly-tier, there are contributions on dressings and fishing techniques by such famous names as Richard Walker, Geoffrey Bucknall and David Collyer, among others. Many of the dressings have not been recorded elsewhere and include flies that have become highly successful on lakes abroad - particularly North America and New Zealand..". Many terrific lists of dressings, including: Dapping flies; The John Henderson patterns; The Geoffrey Bucknall patterns; The Richard Walker patterns; The David J. Collyer patterns; The John Goddard Stillwater patterns; The "Taffy" Price patterns; The Roy Masters patterns; Farlow's "Murderers"; Welsh patterns; Derek Moseley's Irish mayflies (for lakes); Dr. Michael Kennedy's sedge flies and pupa dressings; A.J. Hayter midge pupa dressings; Terry Thomas sedge flies; the A.C.R. Howman ("Alastair Ross") nymphs; New Zealand lake patterns - plus sections on individual patterns such as Alec Iles' "Breatherlizer," the Polystickle and others.
