The title of this book is just the beginning! It contains a selection of a dozen or so flies that you’ll find in Peter’s kit no matter where he’s travelling to – in fresh or salt water, anywhere in Australia.
This is much more than just a fly tying book, although the tying of each of these fly patterns is certainly included. What’s even more valuable is Peter’s insights into why these patterns are so versatile and productive, not to mention his detailed explanations of how to use them!
Peter’s personal experience shines through and is presented in an entertaining and engaging way. Quite often this is achieved through anecdotes of his saltwater fly fishing exploits across Australia and throughout the world.
Aside from the above, you’ll find a plethora of fly fishing nuggets from techniques for fishing flies deep, retrieve techniques that will make your flies dance and the selection and management of fly lines.
“A Few Great Flies And How To Fish Them” is a semi-hard cover with 240 pages including 64 pages of exquisite colour images and 120 black and white photos, including fly-tying sequences. It deserves to be on the coffee table of every fishing household.
