Reviews for Best Carp Flies
The photography is top notch, as are the tying instructions. World class stuff here…I really enjoyed this book from the first time I opened it up. The flies are fresh and, to me, unique. The text and photos are engaging and informational. I learned something, a lot of things actually, and got quite energised to tie up these flies and give them a try.

Carp are spooky and finicky; catching one requires a well-placed cast with the right fly. Jay Zimmerman…can help us on the latter matter with his new book The Best Carp Flies: How to Tie and Fish Them.
