Twenty Salmon Flies
Author: Michael D. Radencich
Publisher: Stackpole Books
Twenty Salmon Flies features in depth and detail the full range of classic salmon fly patterns from the simplest to the most complex. The twenty patterns together build on styles, types, materials, elements, and techniques. Learn to tie these twenty and you'll master the craft and the art of classic salmon fly tying. Each chapter successively presents patterns that are more and more complex. Chapter one introduces very simple Spey and Dee styles, strip wings with a few elements. Move on to simple upright wing flies, working with full feathers and married wing styles. A chapter focuses on flies with multiple body divisions and another is devoted to Traherne's exquisite (and challenging) Victorian classics. Once you've mastered these 20, you'll be able to tie any classic salmon pattern.

The first edition of Salmon Flies became an indispensable reference soon after it was published in 1978 and went on to become a classic. This new edition builds on that legacy. With new photographs in full colour, it features more than 180 recipes in nine pattern styles -- from simple strip-wings and fully dressed feather wings to tube flies. Each chapter begins with detailed, step-by-step photographs and captions showing the tying sequence for a featured fly, followed by dozens of recipes for additional patterns in the same style.
