Directory of Salmon Flies
This complete illustrated directory of Salmon Flies is the most comprehensive ever! The fruit of 30 years’ research by renowned international fly-tying author Chris Mann is now available in paperback. He corresponded with countless expert salmon fly tyers throughout the world, seeking out all their most popular and enduring salmon flies, and adding these to all the classic patterns.
The directory illustrates over 1800 salmon and steelhead flies in colour and with its full dressing. That makes this the definitive reference. It is the all-in-one volume for salmon anglers and fly tyers across the world. Chris Mann’s vibrant illustrations of the flies show them with clarity, accuracy, and consistency, which is seldom achieved through photographs.
The flies are in alphabetical order, making it easy for the reader to find the exact fly, as well as to check the precise dressing. This directory gives a brief introduction to each fly, its originator (when known), and its reputation. Included in the book is a full cross-referencing index.
Are you ever wondering what a specific fly looks like? Or, whether there is a similar fly in your own box you could use to catch a Salmon? Then you should definitely reach for this indispensable book!
