“Every serious trout fisherman should own this book. The illustrations are some of the best I’ve seen.”
Full-color illustrations, knots specifically for fly fishers and modern tackle, and detailed rigging information for nymphs, dry flies, and streamers are just a few of the things that make this knot guide different from the others. Each knot is meticulously illustrated with ample detail to actually teach you how to tie it, unlike some knot books that leave you guessing. Also included are leader diagrams, knot-tying tips and tricks, and information on rigging strike indicators.
