The most complete guide to fishing flies Describes every type of fly - freshwater and saltwater Covers flies from around the world Every fly is illustrated with a specially taken photograph Flies are tied by some of the world's most famous fly-tiers Collins Fishing Flies is the encyclopaedic guide to the huge range of flies now being used by the modern fly-fisherman, whether they are fishing for the traditional quarry of salmon and trout, chasing bonefish on the tropical flats of the Caribbean, or stalking pike in the cold fens of East Anglia, and everything in between. Collins Fishing Flies not only describes every type of fly used to catch all types of fresh- and saltwater fish, it also describes every type from every country that is currently used. This unique combination allows the fisherman to select flies that may have never been used in their area, or never used to catch that species of fish, or perhaps both, and thus allow the fish to be offered something different. Collins Fishing Flies is divided into fourteen sections: EARLY FLIES NORTH COUNTRY SPIDERS LARVAE & PUPA DRY FLIES AND FLOATING FLIES CUT- OR BURNT-FEATHER WINGS UPWINGED FLY SPINNER FANCY WET FLIES OR LOCH/SEA TROUT FLIES STREAMERS AND BUCKTAILS FLIES FOR SALMON, SEA TROUT AND STEELHEAD SHRIMPS AND PRAWNS SALMON DRY FLIES FLIES FOR SEA-RUN TROUT: SEA TROUT, STEELHEAD, CUTTHROAT AND CHAR FLIES FOR FRESHWATER PREDATORS SALTWATER FLIES For each fly the exact recipe is given, with hints on how to tie the perfect fly, plus a specially commissioned photograph of that fly. In all over 1300 flies are covered in detail.-- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.
