So do any of you have any feed back on this book, "The international Guide to Fly-Tying Materials by Barry Clarke and Robert Spaight"

 

What other books do you like?

My favorite fly book and the one I will use the most is "Essential Trout Flies" by Dave Hughes. Anything by Dave Hughes is a pretty good book. Another book I like is "Fish Flies", the encyclopedia of the fly tyer's art, by Terry Hellekson. It contains a lot of fly recipes and goes into some detail on how to tie them.

I have this book.

 

It is a useful background reference--especially for newer tyers who may feel overwhelmed by the wide choice of materials. However, it is a bit outdated and therefore doesn't cover many of the newer synthetic materials out there.

 

There are far better references for the general tyer. (I don't own it, but people swear by the Fly Tyers Benchside Reference).
