Bestselling angling author Gene Kugach has compiled a wide-ranging gallery of flies, some familiar, some obscure, that will enhance any fly tier's repertoire. Culled from tying demonstrations presented at the Chicago Fly Fishers, a Chicago-area club, this collection features favorite patterns and variations, as well as originals created by club members, including many by the author. Each fly is illustrated, its origin and uses given, and its tying steps explained in detail. Patterns include wets, drys, streamers, nymphs, crustaceans, leeches, terrestrials, and lure-streamer combinations.
Gene Kugach is the author of the bestselling Fishing Basics and Freshwater Fishing Tips and Techniques.
