Skip Morris Books:

Fly Tying and Fishing Instruction
from a Master Angler




Over Forty Years of Experience at the Vise and on the Water...

Skip Morris books are popular with both beginning and experienced fly fishers; the insights this well-known author shares with you came from over forty years of studying the arts of fly tying and fly fishing.

Fly Tying Made Clear and Simple



It all started with Skip's first fly-tying book,

Fly Tying Made Clear and Simple.


It's been the top-selling book in America on tying flies since 1992.




This book is now, incredibly, in its 25th printing.





Passionate about Fly Fishing, and Dedicated to Teaching

Why has Fly Tying Made Clear and Simple sold so well? Partly because Skip understands not only fly tying and fly fishing in a way few do—but mainly because he understands the teaching of these skills with rare depth.


This is Skip's passion. And he really loves sharing what he's discovered with other fly fishers at all levels.



Research, Testing, Testing, Testing, and then more Research...

Most people are surprised to discover that Skip spends several years researching and polishing each of his books.

For example, with Fly Tying Made Clear and Simple, Skip taught the flies and tying techniques to people who had never tied before, honing the instructions to efficient clarity, making double sure the book was simply the best it could be.

For Morris & Chan on Fly Fishing Trout Lakes he dedicated four years to his own research, working closely with lake-guru Brian Chan, and writing.




That is how he does it, and the result is

books that are carefully thought out, thorough, and
easy to follow.
