Guide to Fly Tying is Talleur's best work yet for novice and journeyman tiers, and indeed one of the best books around for anyone who'd like to learn to tie flies or improve the flies he's already tying . . . As always, his photos are among the very best Acclaimed tier and master teacher Dick Talleur presents the fundamentals and key techniques for tying all the popular patterns, with step-by-step color photos and explicit text showing every nuance of the process. This book builds on Talleur's classic reference, Mastering the Art of Fly Tying, one of the first to go beyond the simple recipe-photo format to provide detailed explanations of technique. That book taught a generation of fly fishers how to tie; Guide to Fly Tying offers the same scope and approach while incorporating the latest in materials, tools, and techniques.
