In addition to a thorough discussion of the primary and secondary triggering characteristics of each of the fish's food organisms, Gary presents stimulating and highly informed discussions on material selection, tying procedures, and design concepts. The detailed descriptions, region by region, of the most used sizes and colors of flies to match the fish's food organisms are an invaluable aid to tying or buying the most effective imitations. The many illustrative anecdotes - drawn from Gary's 35 years of fly fishing - not only make the book fun to read but highly instructional as well. All of this in the clear, precise language that is Gary's trademark. Complementing and thoroughly illustrating the comprehensive text are 230 beautifully detailed drawings by Jason Borger. Sixteen pages of full-color photos show the flies larger than life size. The carefully designed layout and extensive index make access to the contents swift and simple.
