Synopsis of Fly Dressers’ Guide:

This fourth edition has been completely revised and updated by the author and includes 14 colour plates, 16 monocrome plates and many b&w drawings/illustrations.

The first, and still probably the best, of the great fly-tying compendiums. John Veniard drew on the resources of his previously published booklets, and his vast experience of fly-tying, to produce a work that would remain the standard for many years.

It is worth noting that besides flies for salmon, trout and grayling, this book includes many patterns for coarse species; pike, perch, chub, dace, roach and rudd, as well as a section on flies for saltwater angling.
