"Must-Read:"Tying Catskill-Style Dry Flies

September 25, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

Yesterday Morgan Lyle called Mike Valla’s new book Tying Catskill-Style Dry Flies (Headwater Books, August 2009, 534 color photos, 252 pages) a must-read for those who love fly fishing and fly tying. As Lyle says, “Tying Catskill-Style Dry Flies is above all a fly-tying book, and tiers will love learning the details of how the masters plied their craft. Precisely what vises they used, what surgical instruments they used as hackle pliers, what color thread they used (you might be surprised), what they discovered when they dissected Rube Cross’s flies – this stuff is priceless.”
