I purchased this guide a few weeks ago, because of my interest in Southern trout flies. When I recieved it and opened it up I was very impressed with how well its written. It lists the traditional patterns, with full color photographs of the flies in detail,along with a brief on their history.
While its not a how to tie book its detail photos of the flies is sufficient enough to tie from, even for me. I'm of the belief that a picture is worth a 1001 words. At a 19.95 price its worth the investment.
And these are a classic treat this time of year.... soon to be roasted chestnuts. Those of you who have never tried these, please do.... I'll leave it at that.
Gotta love a good read...ReplyDelete
Looks good to me. I'd find a spot on my shelf.ReplyDelete
I knew you would like that book. :)ReplyDelete
If fly fishing the Southern Appalachians appeals to you then may I suggest a book by the late Harry Middleton entitled "On The Spine Of Time". It's a collection of tales about life in the Smokies with trout and fly fishing being the central theme.ReplyDelete
The "reading season" is upon us. This book helps!
blake, troutrageous1, I know you'll enjoy this book.ReplyDelete
AT, your right
Millers River Flyfisher, I'll check that title out.
The possibilities are endless!ReplyDelete
I like chestnuts very much too. I sometimes buy roasted ones, but when we cook them home, we simply boil them in salted water. We also buy chestnut cream. A friend of my wife gives us her home-made marrons glacés every year in this season.ReplyDelete
Its good to see a post from you. Hope you are well.
I too boil them especially when I use them in a risotto.
We have roast chestnuts with our Christmas turkey. We put them in with the roasted vegetables, as they go well with dinner.ReplyDelete
Happy New Year.
I want to buy the Fly Pattern Guide and it seems to be out of print and hard to find. Any idea where I might be able to order it? Thanks.ReplyDelete
I just read your comment.
You can get the Guide here.
