With over 90,000 sold in its first edition, this is "a classic book from a highly respected tier" (Jay Cassell, Deputy Editor, Field & Stream). Here is a book for fly tiers, beginners and experts alike, that provides foolproof directions for tying all types of flies. Unlike specialized books that describe particular types or styles of flies, this book covers them all--both freshwater and saltwater flies. Dry flies for trout, streamers for tarpon, hair bugs for bass: you will find them here. Eric Leiser teaches the basic methods for tying standard dries, hair dries, parachute dries, hackleless flies, wets, nymphs, streamers, Jassids and other terrestrials, and more. Whether you're a seasoned tier looking for specific advice, or you're brand new to the craft and just want the fundamentals, this book is a complete education. 50 b/w illus., 16 b/w photos

Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen. Our books for anglers include titles that focus on fly fishing, bait fishing, fly-casting, spin casting, deep sea fishing, and surf fishing. Our books offer both practical advice on tackle, techniques, knots, and more, as well as lyrical prose on fishing for bass, trout, salmon, crappie, baitfish, catfish, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
