Details

This book is "essentially a dictionary of over 800 traditional and modern dressings from an Irish fly-tyer's notebook, filling a major gap in angling literature: there is information on hooks, fly-dressing materials and their preparation, with a guide to vegetable dyeing and the materials used to obtain the subtle colours beloved by the traditional fly tyers. Trout and salmon fly dressings each have their own section, and there are appendices that provide information on where to fish throughout Ireland, and often on which flies are particularly effective in each area." One of the essential books on the Irish patterns. This edition has new colour photographs of flies tied by Frankie McPhilips.The first edition is out-of-print and already scarce and hard to find.
