Default Steelhead flies Book -Traditional (no eggs etc)

Recommend me a nice book on steelhead flies.

I was looking at Shewey: Steelhead flies.

Any good? any other quality publications?

Steelhead Flies by Shewey is excellent. Highly recommended.

Flies for Steelhead by Dick Stewart and Farrow Allen is a great resource too if you can find it.

Aside from Shewey the only one I can think of is Dec Hogan's Passion for Steelhead. Its not just patterns though but more of a technique/how to with a fair ammount of some really productive patterns.

Shewey's book has SBSs, technique, material discussion, amazing photos, and a bit of history.

Stewart and Allen's book has a large selection of flies, many tied by famous tiers. It also has a bit of history of some flies.

Both of Trey Combs' steeelhead books have nice fly plates as well.

Also Chris Mann's books are good resources for patterns. Not my favorite though as they use all computer images for the pictures.
