Interest in tying small flies to catch trout is increasing, and flies are being tied smaller with finer materials that come onto the market every day. Learn to imitate midges trailing shucks and drowned adults, tie tiny parachutes and white-winged Tricos, and create patterns that mimic microcaddis and micro scuds. Learn about the origin of the Brassie and RS-2, and such classic patterns as the Renegade, the Gold-Ribbed Hares Ear, and Griffiths Gnat. The book covers small-fly history, tying tools, and the materials youll need to begin tying your own flies.
