Re: Good flytying book?
Incidently I have most of the books mentioned plus about 200 more on Flyfishing & Flytying around the world.
Without a doubt the best book on how to do nearly anything associated with Flytying is "The Benchside Reference Book" by Leeson & Schollmeyer,however two great books by Dave Hughes I reccomend are.
1.American Flytying Manual
2.Essentual Trout Flies.(Photos by Jim Schollmeyer).
Another really good book is Tying & Fishing Outstanding Flies By Doug Stewart.
The book with the best Artwork,out of all the books I have is Fur & Feather By Peter Leuver,not because he is also an Aussie,his drawings are really excellent.
The only thing is some of the Flies,not all are also Aussie Patterns which I think would catch Rainbows,Cutthroats,Browns & definately Greyling in the USA.
