Barry Ord Clarke’s ground-breaking flytying book featuring QR codes and YouTube video links for each pattern described, providing step-by-step instruction to help you take your tying to the next level. 

This book is aimed at all fly tyers, from those with modest experience to those with more advanced skills. The author’s intention is to focus on certain important elementary techniques, and then share some of his favourite contemporary twists on old, tried-and-true techniques. Many of the flies in this book are based in his own techniques and patterns, ones that he has developed in more than thirty-five years of tying.
 
The book is arranged in sections to give readers the opportunity to easily locate the pattern or technique they are looking for. Patterns are not grouped alphabetically, but by technique. For example, the section on dry flies has categories demonstrating a particular dry fly style or technique such as mastering the use of deer hair, parachute, CDC, and so on.
 
If you are fairly new to fly tying, the opening chapters on materials and special techniques and tricks will familiarize you with some basics and help you get started. Seasoned tyers will similarly find information here to help them raise their tying skills to a new level.
 
Each pattern is listed with a recipe, recommended hook style, size, and materials. They are listed in the order that that author uses them, and illustrated by the book’s step-by-step images. This will help you plan each pattern and assemble materials your beforehand.

Included are lushly illustrated photos for such well-known trout flies as:

  • Pheasant tail nymph
  • Klinkhamer
  • Humpy
  • Deer Hair Irresistible
  • CDC Mayfly Spinner
  • And much more.
