  • "This isn't just another fly-tying book filled with recipes you can replicate, and some braggadocious fishing stories. Instead, this is a book that gives all fly tiers the knowledge and inspiration to design their own flies... Chicone helps you find the right hook, shows how to test the sink rate of flies, watch how flies track in the water, and fix problems by weighting or trimming the fly." --Ross Purnell, Fly Fisherman
