The Fly-tying Bible
Author: Peter Gathercole
Publisher: Aurum Press
With a double-page spread devoted to each pattern, featuring step-by-step instructions in full colour, and ring-bound so that it will lie flat on the bench or table top beside the fly-tying vice, this is the ideal reference book for anglers who wish to tie their own versions of the most successful patterns in current use. Peter Gathercole starts with an introduction to fly-tying basics, materials, equipment and techniques. He divides the flies themselves into five categories: Dry Flies, Nymphs and Bugs, Wet Flies, Streamers, and Hairwings and cover patterns that have a proven success record in catching trout, salmon and grayling in rivers and lakes throughout the world. On each spread there is a key indicating which species the fly is designed to attract, a brief description of when and how it should be used, a full-colour photograph of the finished fly indicating the materials used for the body, rib, hackle, etc., the range of hook sizes for which the pattern is suitable and, on the facing page, easy to follow, step-by-step instructions for tying. A craft requiring patience, practice and the right instruction, this comprehensive guide has remained a highly popular choice among fly-fishermen since its original publication in 2003.
Novice fly fisherman start fly tying with a predictable set of materials. Their benches are neatly arranged with small bags of elk hair, pheasant feathers, stray pieces of chenille and yarn. But eventually they find that not only are these materials more expensive than they need to be, they are also largely unnecessary. And so they starts making substitutions, using trial and error to gradually build up a bench of funky, personalized materials that work just as well as what the “experts” recommend. For the first time, here is a book that truly demystifies fly tying, making it accessible to any fisherman with a vice, a hook, a few dabs of glue, and a handful of twisty-ties. Tying legend Jay “Fishy” Fullum brings together a lifetime of substitution experience to give invaluable advice on appropriate substitution materials. He describes how to find them and make them tier friendly, and how to turn them into flies that are practically guaranteed to catch fish.

Megan Boyd is considered to be one of the world's finest salmon fly tyers and she is the subject of the US film 'Kiss the Water'. She was born in 1915, and was bought up in the Highlands of Scotland where her father was a bailiff on the River Brora. She began taking flytying lessons at the age of twelve and soon gained a reputation for tying beautiful feather-wing flies which were extra-ordinarily durable and lasted many seasons. In 1935, at the age of twenty, Megan left home and moved into a small cottage near Brora where she lived without electricity or running water until the 1980s. Visiting anglers from all over the world who came to fish the Highland rivers for salmon would stop by her cottage to watch her tie flies and place orders.
