New Books: Tying Classic Freshwater Streamers

October 31, 2004 By: Marshall Cutchin

The Countryman Press has just released a new book by David Klausmeyer — the editor of Fly Tyer Magazine — called Tying Classic Freshwater Streamers: An Illustrated Step-by-Step Guide (hardcover, 136 pages). The Lexington Herald-Leader describes the book’s contents: “Learn the anatomy of a streamer and what material the various parts are commonly made from, and how to choose the right hook, feathers and synthetic materials. There’s a chapter devoted to tandem hook streamers for muskies and striped bass, marabou streamers, bucktails and epoxy-headed flies, like the Thunder Creek, which imitates a minnow. Learn how to tie the Muddler Minnow, which is made of squirrel tail hair, wild turkey feathers and deer hair, view a gallery of streamers, and the names, addresses and e-mails of anglers featured in the book.” Looks like a good one, and by a guy who really knows his stuff.
