Creative Fly Tying by Mike Mercer.

The book serious fly tiers across the country have been waiting for. California's Mike Mercer--whose highly original trout patterns have made him one of Umpqua Faether Merchants' top fly designers--offers fresh and thought-provoking insights to the art of fly tying in Creative Fly Tying, his first book. These concepts are drawn from a lifetime spent on the water fishing and guiding, studying the prey and feeding habits of fish. Mercer shows how to think differently about trout flies; he explains which materials to use and why. He reveals the evolutions and epiphanies that went into the creation of 12 of his favorite innovative patterns: Gold Bead Poxyback Green Drake Nymph, Copper Bead Micro Z-Wing Caddis, Profile Spinner, Rag Sculpin, Micro Mayfly Nymph, Alaska Lemming, PMD Trigger Nymph, Gold Bead Biot Epoxy Golden Stone Nymph, Sac Fry, Rag Hex Nymph, Zebra Midgeling, Glasstail Caddis Pupa. Very little is left to chance in these deadly flies--they are truly designed, head to tail. Tying sequences are elaborately and exquisitely photographed in super-sharp detail by Ted Fauceglia, America's foremost macro-photographer of aquatic insects.
