By David Young, Cheryl Young

I first begun tying flies in 1955. My details got here from a booklet released via the previous shop Herter . i purchased my fabrics from them and that i remember receiving unfastened hackle packaged in a brown paper lunch bag. It took me longer to discover the precise hackle than to tie a fly. i used to be addicted to tying whilst I stuck an eight-pound rainbow on my first actual fly. It was once a Mickey fin tied with feathers rather than hair. i've been an avid tier ever when you consider that. This pastime guided me to a occupation as a dentist. i admire developing issues with my fingers. Now I get pleasure from designing new flies to compare the various waters that I get pleasure from fishing. colourful images and illustrations are integrated on each web page during this e-book.
