NEW HOOKED ON FLY TYING TITLES & RECIPES

24 new titles recorded in digital widescreen High Definition format by the worlds premier fly tying program producers Jim & Kelly Watt, these programs are educational/instructional DVDs designed for all levels of fly tyers.

This small collection of traditional Catskill dry flies is representative of the old classics, using a good mix of materials and techniques, yet continues to fish well on freestone trout rivers everywhere. Also included here is a pattern for the big burrowing Mayflies of the far North country lakes, one that will entice the largest Brook Trout swimming today, when cast to the right spot at the right time! This fly once caught a trout that was so big that two cameras were required to get a photo of it!

The Minonipi Wulff is one of Daves favorite flies and has taken some of the largest brook trout in Labrador. All this and more have lead Dave to appreciate that fly fishing is not simply a hobby, but rather a way of life.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Dave Brandt (pen name Brooks Gordon)
is the founding member of Catskill Fly Tyers guild and has been involved with Trout Unlimited, The Federation of Fly Fishers, United Fly Tyers, The Catskill Fly Fishing Center & Museum and several Fly Fishing Shows. He has tied flies commercially for years, finally moving toward more custom tying and teaching as an instructor with the Wulff Fishing School for the last 20 years. I would hope to have conveyed some of the little detail that would make one Catskill dry a little better than another, even though we all know that each will (can) catch fish.

Some of us come to feel that most of what we fly tyers do is not for the fish, anyway, but to impress each other!
