Fly-fishing is a passion that takes anglers from country to country, from inland alpine rivers to coastal shores. Tying flies is one of the pleasures of the sport, and tends to become addictive - it's functional, fun and, above all, creative. Indeed, for many people, making the flies is just as satisfying, if not more so, than the fishing itself.

Art of the Fly is a step-by-step guide to tying flies for both freshwater and saltwater fish. There are detailed instructions for tying 50 flies, accompanied by beautiful yet practical colour photographs, lists of the materials you'll need for each fly, and tips on choosing the right fly for particular situations.

Whether you're an amateur or an old hand, just starting out or looking for a wider variety of flies or tying techniques, you'll find The Art of the Fly an invaluable handbook. And it will make a great gift for fly-fishing fanatics.
