A Great Book!

This book was my 2008 Christmas gift from my dear wife.

I cannot say enough good things about it. Thousands of Atlantic Salmon and Steelhead flies are richly illustrated in this book that could be compared to George Kelson's classic volume on Atlantic salmon flies.
As you know product endorsements are very rare on this blog but I make exceptions when I feel something deserves recognition and this book certainly does.
This book is published by Amato books and is the fruit of 30 years' research by renowned international fly tying author, Chris Mann.

  1. Shane;
    Good call on the book. Art, tradition and history between the bindings.
    I discovered your blog today, and kick myself for not finding it earlier. Of the many blogs out there currently, yours is among the finest. Your musings and thoughts are keen and deep, your humor full and self-deprecating, your politics and environmental opinions certainly echo with me.
    I have added your blog to my blog sites listing of worthies.
