Inhaltsangabe: A revealing look into the fly box of one of North America's most respected and experienced fly tyers, with complete, step-by-step tying instructions.
Fly fishers meeting streamside often go through a garrulous ritual, the aim of which is not friendship but espionage: “Catching anything? On what?? “Rising fish? Mmm . . .what?re they looking at?? And sometimes during this dialogue, an angler might happen to get a glimpse into the fly box of a lifelong student of fly fishing—a moment?s opportunity that will both impress and pique the wishful fly tyer. A. K. Best?s Fly Box, provides a much longer, much more detailed and explanatory look into the creations and methods of a great fly tyer. More than two hundred full-color illustrations depict naturals and their well-developed imitations—Cahills, Green and Brown Drakes, BWOs, PMDs, Red Quills, Tricos, Caddis, Midges, Stoneflies, Terrestrials, and more.
A. K.?s step-by-step tying instructions not only teach the reader how to make excellent imitations, but also demonstrate an approach to tying that he has refined over years of practice. In fact, the author insists that he ties a “hundred dozen? copies of a single pattern before he can feel confident that he truly knows that pattern. A. K. has fished with all of the flies in this book for at least sixteen years, many as long as thirty-five years, continuously refining the patterns to make them easier to tie, more durable, and more effective at fooling trout. Anglers of any experience will benefit from this wise and thorough book that offers a revealing, highly instructional look into the fly box of one of North America?s most respected and experienced tyers.
