Got a great new tying book for Christmas from my wife. It is called "Steelhead Flies" by John Shewey. It is a fantastic tutorial on the finer points of dressing flies and has lots of excellent photos of the step- by -step tying instructions.The book is a little pricey around $50 I think but I think money well spent if you enjoy tying artsy looking steelhead flies. The book has close to 200 diffrent patterns and recepies, some with the step-by-step instructions. I have been tying some great looking stuff since Cristmas. Just thought I'd share my thoughts since I'm going crazy with this weather. On a somewhat related note has anyone ever been involved in a fly swap? I've seen them advertised on other forums, maybe we could start one here.If anyone knows the ins and outs of a swap and wants to start one I'd be in. I think it would be kind of interesting to see what others are tying, to while away the time.
