An illustrated guide to historical and modern flies, hooks, lines, and loop rods. Whether looking for a back-to-basics approach to fly-tying or a better understanding of its history, The Fly-Fisher's Craft is the perfect volume to educate the curious angler as well as to provide tips of the trade. A detailed history of fly-tying and historical flies are coupled with the author's personal modern fly patterns, satisfying the fisher's desire for the pastoral and practical. In The Fly-Fisher's Craft , experienced outdoors writer Darrel Martin provides thoroughly researched history and careful instruction accompanied by color photographs throughout. Chapters cover a wide variety of topics, such as: Tying in antiquity Fly design Personal patterns Hooks and lines Loop-rods And much more! In a newly augmented edition, new readers will have the chance to discover the roots of fly fishing and fly tying from antiquity up through the modern era. With forewords by Ted Leeson and by John Betts, both respected angling authors, this book is a complete source for the fly-tier. 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.
