Description

From the popular to the obscure, Valla delves into the history of these marvelous flies, masterfully weaving quotes from Gordon, Cross, the Dettes, Bergman, and other legends with his own personal anecdotes about growing up in the Catskill tying tradition. Fully illustrated with gorgeous color photography and complete with dressing appendix.

WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING:

"Short of a medium who could channel the spirits of Theodore Gordon, Ruben Cross, Art Flick, and Harry Darbee, it would be hard to find a person better qualified for writing a book like this than Mike Valla...magisterial tying skills and expert macro photography, which can relentlessly expose any lapses in tying technique, have done full justice to the ideas of the originators of these patterns and to the beauty and balanced proportions of the flies…" -- Bud Bynack, California Fly Fisher (Jan/Feb 2011)

We are proud to announce that a percentage of the royalties from the trade edition of this book will be donated to the Catskill Museum and Fly Fishing Center.
