Having attended Lefty's seminars, I find that his teaching gift is communicated very well in his writings and video.
There are few people in the world that can throw a fly as well as Lefty and know the proper presentation in all conditions and perform that task in an excellent manner.
Knots are so very important and his knowledge of how to tie these knots and teach others to do the same is presented very nicely in the book and on the video. We spend alot of time and money in pursuit of fish and the instruction presented by Lefty will make us all better fisherman.

Lefty Kreh has put together a comprehensive book of clear drawings, coupled with a video of the southpaw himself carrying on about the knots. The knots are for virtually any fishing application, not just for fly fishing. The book is ring bound and sturdily covered for field used. The book and DVD are wonderfully complementary, and I have always enjoyed Kreh's "just folks" stage presence. You can't go wrong with this set.

This book contains many useful fishing knots and tips. Careful reading is necessary to pick up all the valuable tips. For example, the one about spiraling the first two turns of a bimini in braid. This tip fixed a problem I'd been having with unexplained breakages in my biminis!

I rated it 4 stars rather than 5 only because it seems to also contain the odd "item of confusion", for me anyway! For example the Kreh Loop step 2 sketch looks incorrect when compared with both the step 3 sketch and written explanation. Overall though it is a very useful text and DVD combo!

I purchased this book recently when I was having trouble keeping leaders attached to my fly line with braided loop ends. I learned how to make a Whipped Loop End right on my fly line from this book. The DVD, which is included was a great help. On the DVD, Lefty talks about all the basics and also demonstrates all of the major knots that comprise the text of the book. It is a very complete work that starts with 3 basic knots and builds up to every knot a light tackle fisherman will ever need to know. A great work from one of the all time greats of flyfishing.

This book has more knots than most fishermen would ever use. As a referance it is really great. Can not imagine a single situation that this book doesn't cover for connecting lines, lures, flies and even repairing rods.

This is a complete reference to all types of fly fishing knots, their purpose and how best to use them. It also includes many dos & don'ts and details like knot strength that are missing in other books. If you need to learn the knots or a reference book that will help you remember what you've already learned, don't think about it. Just buy this book! It even comes in a nifty "lay flat" binding that makes it easy to practice your knots without being forced to hold the book open at the same time. It also comes with a cd that demonstrates the knots for you. Lefty himself talks and (shows) walks you through each knot right on your computer screen. I'm happy I bought it and think you will be too. It's easily worth every penny I paid!

I would highly recommend this book and DVD to any fisherman, or anybody interested in learning more about knots. I checked this book out in our local library and liked it so much that I purchased it for myself. The DVD is Lefty setting in front of a video camera demonstrating how to tie knots. He does an excellent showing you have to tie and telling what knots to use for different applications.
