Proven Patterns

Flies for Sea Trout, rivers - Flies for Sea Trout, saltwater - Flies for Pike

The concept of small booklets with patterns has been seen before, and offers a quick overview over a small number of patterns in a small handy and not least inexpensive format. Barry Ord Clarke's first three booklets offer 10-15 patterns, some with detailed step-by-step pictures and some just with a single image or two, a materials list and tying instructions. The pictures are very high quality and the average quality of the booklets is equally high. The price is about 4 UK£ or 6 US$ per book, which is a very low price for a book, but not dirt cheap when you consider that you get about 35 pages in a very small format. Still some very accessible books, which are perfect for beginning fly tyers. More titles are underway with more salmon flies, bass flies, carp flies an many more.
