More Information
In it you will find more than 1,600 fly patterns illustrated in full color, patterns that are part of the Canadian mosaic, some of historical significance, others so new that few have yet to tie & try them. Here's what Jack Berryman, writing in Salmon-Trout-Steelheader, had to say:
"... patterns designed specifically for Canadian waters. Each fly is presented with a color photograph & recipe, along with the originator &/or tier's name. Flies are arranged in eight specific chapters that focus on: Atlantic salmon wet flies; Atlantic salmon dry flies; steelhead wet flies; steelhead dry flies; other anadromous species; saltwater flies; trout flies; &, other freshwater species. For flies that require special tying techniques, additional instructions are provided in a long appendix. The authors present the work of over three hundred tiers, provide an extensive bibliography of sources, & a detailed index. The layout of the book is very user friendly & the spiral binding allows the book to lay flat while patterns are being tied. A highlight is the collection of photographs of Canadian fly tiers from Noel Money, Tommy Brayshaw, & Roderick Haig-Brown to Jack Shaw, Paul Bean, & Maurice How. The chapter on trout flies is particularly extensive, with subsections devoted to chironomids, caddisflies, mayflies, stoneflies, baitfish, other food forms, & attractor patterns. Overall, this is a magnificent collection."
