Reviews

'Hailed by critics as "one of the most gifted fly tiers in America" and "the most precise and technique-savvy tier I have known", Craven is as pains to point out in the book's introduction that it is not intended merely as a pattern guide but as a showcase for the tying techniques that will help you tie better flies of any ilk... The book stays focused on the flies alone, rather than also embracing the question of how you should fish them. For more on that aspect of this most precise method of fly angling, Craven recommends George Daniel's book Dynamic Nymphing, a view with which I would concur.' Trout Fisherman
