You can now enjoy Oliver Edwards' great videos, hang prints with his flies on the wall and even buy his patterns to fish with.
We have covered Oliver Edwards' book Flytyer's Masterclass the first time many years ago (17 actually!) when it was first published. An excellent book, which will teach you a lot of Oliver's techniques and help you tie his very realistically looking, yet very fishable flies.
The fly selection is pretty impressive with dozens of both dries and wets available, and some of Edwards' signature flies in the bunch like the Heptagenid nymph, the Hydropsyche larva and the POPA Caddis. It is of course not Edwards himself who has tied them, but the samples I have seen are very well tied, and do live up to the highest expectations. The prices aren't exactly low, but on the other hand very reasonable when the complexity and quality of the flies is considered. You can buy sets of flies, where a selection of 7-9 flies has been boxed.
If you want an Edwards on your wall there is also a number of fine art prints available, each with a selection of flies drawn in great detail, and nicely printed.
