    Default Fly Tieing Books

    I got a beginners guide, but have found that I have grown out of it. What are some more advanced books that are recomended? I'm looking more for big fish flies, streamers, and maybe salt flies. Thanks

    Take a look at 'The flytiers benchside referrence'.
    It will show you many, many different techniques for all sorts of flies, it's not an inexpensive book by any means, but you will refer to it for the rest of your days.

    Try mastering the art of fly tying by G. Randolph Erskine I got this book for christmas and it seems pretty good i have tied several flys with it but have not had a chance to fish them yet due to fridgid temps. It gives a 160 different recipes with step by step pics. I also have a book called handbook of hatches which is very helpful too.

    Hey MrEsox
    I just read your profile and it looks like you will be bass and panfishing more often I have a book called tying warmwater flys that may fit what you are looking for a little better. There are some very good internet sites with lots of recipes just google fly tying lots of free info out there. I like collecting old fly fishing and tying books so dont be afraid to get used ones on ebay lots of good old books out there too.

    Hi MrEsox,
    There are two books that in my circle of fly tying friend suggest for the type of flies that you are looking into. Here they are:

    Clousers Flies

    Modern Streamers For Trophy Trout

    Although, the last title suggest Trout most of the patterns if not all will work for warmwater species as well.

    Hope this helps.
    Thanks,
    Terry

    Hi MrEsox,

    I am with Terry on the Clouser book. There is also a new DVD out with Bob Clouser and Lefty Kreh that is definitely a winner. I would want this DVD even if I never tyed any streamers. A lot of basic information besides how to tye the two greatest streamers of the modern time. The Clouser minnow and Lefty's Deceiver.

    Never go wrong with anything from Bob Clouser or Lefty. If Frank doesn't mind I would like to add one more name to the mix, the old Taxi driver Jack Gartside.

    Thanks for the info on the books. I have picked up 2 Clouser minnows and have read many good things about them. Up here when they are running, we get some really hot Cutthroat. Mostly they are caught from a boat and the Clouser minnow is the #1 fly used. I myself have not had a chance to head out after them, but I hear it is really some good action. I will look into the books listed and see what I find. Thanks again
