Feather Craft


The Amazing Birds and Feathers Used in Classic Salmon Flies

If you like birds, feathers, and/or fishing flies, I encourage you to get a copy of my book which is now out and on the way to bookstores and fly shops everywher.

There is something for everyone in it - whether you have never tied a fly before or seen how it is done to those who've been tying for years or decades. Great photos of feathers, finished flies and step-by-step techniques for making all 16 flies shown in the book. Add to that beautiful paintings of 50 amazing birds and you have a feast for the eyes.
