The book is almost 300 pages beautifully presented. There is a mix of color photos of modern and precious fly dressings in their original hand written form, on old parchment. The section of fly plates is complete with color photos and the dressing of that particular fly. What I found very interesting was that the origin of the North Country Fly came from Italy and was imported by the Romans.
This book is a must for the Spider/Soft Hackle fly fancier. I'm sure it will become a classic.
