Great Reference Guide

I have used this as a reference guide to get my questions answered. I have used it several times in the last few weeks. It has not let me down yet. The index is about 50 pages, so, it is very easy to find just about any thing you could possible want to know about flies.

The best

Everything you'd want to know about fly fishing from A-Z, with lovely little illustrations by one of the USA's most talented specialists in flies and lures, the one and only Wanda Prunty. This is said to be "Volume I," but I don't know if Volume 2 or 3 has ever been issued. No need, I can't imagine anything that Terry, Jim and Wanda left out of Volume 1. Wouldn't you love to have an original of Wanda's cunning drawings? They would make great tattooes if nothing else. The flies are sumptuous and a sight to behold. From fluorescent floss to fire hackle, from lambs wool to pheasant feathers, from squirrel tail to sea weed, these authors have pinned down what you want and what your fish want too.
