L.L. Bean Fly-Tying Handbook
Globe Pequot Press, Oct 1, 1998 - Sports & Recreation - 118 pages
In the L.L. Bean Fly-Tying Handbook, Dick Talleur gives simple, clear, and practical instruction on how to tie a representative group of the most popular flies. These flies are all proven to catch fish in a variety of waters - and the ones that Dick has chosen will enable the beginning tyer to learn all the basic skills. Chapters include information on the tools and techniques that are useful for tying every fly; how to handle common materials; and detailed instructions on the best ways to tie nymphs and streamers, soft-hackles and dries. Every chapter will increase the tyer's skills: with step-by-step instructions and full-color photographs of each sequence, tyers will learn to make such well-known files as the Hair-Wing Caddis, Adams, Woolly Worm, and Royal Wulff. This handbook will help all beginning and intermediate fly tyers learn the satisfying art of tying flies that will surely catch fish; and nothing is more satisfying than catching fish on flies you've tied yourself.
