Overview

Interest in tying small flies to catch trout is increasing, and flies are being tied smaller with finer materials that come onto the market every day. Learn to imitate midges’ trailing shucks and drowned adults, tie tiny parachutes and white-winged Tricos, and create patterns that mimic microcaddis and micro scuds. Learn about the origin of the Brassie and RS-2, and such classic patterns as the Renegade, the Gold-Ribbed Hare’s Ear, and Griffith’s Gnat. The book covers small-fly history, tying tools, and the materials you’ll need to begin tying your own flies. Tips on fishing techniques come from Ed Engle’s 30 years of experience fishing small flies on the South Platte River.
