Trout Flies for Rivers:

Patterns from the West that
Work Everywhere




Trout Flies for Rivers: Patterns from the West that Work Everywhere




Trout Flies for Rivers is a fly pattern book unlike any other...

Most fly pattern books simply include the barest information and a photo of each fly design, or "pattern"—as a result, most tiers can't figure out how to tie many of the flies, and then may tie them incorrectly.

Not so with Trout Flies for Rivers—many of the flies are shown from two or even three angles, the information for complex flies includes tying instruction and sometimes even tying steps with captions and photos to help you tie all 626 flies in the book.


There is even information on the insects the flies imitate.

A tying DVD is included...

In a sleeve inside the back cover, is a step-by-step tying DVD on which Skip shows you how to make some of the book's most challenging techniques and fly designs work for you (this DVD covers the most unusual and interesting thirteen of the thirty-one sequences outlined in the book).
