By one of my favorite fly tiers and Authors, Mike Valla’s “Tying the Founding Flies” is an excellent companion to his earlier “The Founding Flies.”
A true how-to book with the histories and detailed instructions on how to tie 21 amazing patterns. Ever heard of the Shushan Postmaster by Lew Oatman? Or the Missoulian Spook? What about the Kings River Caddis or Firehole Number One? All are in here with many other patterns that celebrate some of the greatest American fly tiers.
