Tying Small Flies

Front Cover
Stackpole Books, 2017 - Flies, Artificial - 240 pages
Taking trout on lightweight rods with flies as small as size 20 and 30 is a challenge. Learn to imitate midges' trailing shucks and drowned adults, tie tiny parachutes and white-winged Tricos, and create patterns that mimic microcaddis and micro scuds. Engle covers small-fly history, tying tools, and materials. Tips on fishing techniques come from Ed Engle's 30 years of experience fishing small flies on the South Platte River.

What a great book. Lots of great information and patterns. I really appreciated the discussion on small hooks. I fish a tailwater quite frequently and this book will no doubt improve my success on that body of water. Read full review
