Back cover copy

In The Orvis Guide to Beginning Fly Tying, Eric Leiser shows how to take such basic materials as hooks, threads, fur, and feathers and make them into effective flies that catch fish. He demonstrates the crucial tying techniques needed to dub bodies, tie in tails and hackle, and create upright wings on dry flies. Step by step, he takes the novice tyer through the skills necessary to tie such classics as the Woolly Bugger, the Hare's Ear, the Leadwig Coachman, the Black-Nose Dace, and the Hendrickson dry-fly. At the end of each chapter, he offers variations on these basic patterns to make a variety of other useful flies. The Orvis Guide to Beginning Fly Tying makes a great gift for all aspiring fly tyers.
