    Book details


No book has taught—or retaught—more serious fly tiers the basic skills of fly tying than Helen Shaw’s Fly-Tying. Shaw’s simple and logical prose throughout and more than 250 life-size tying sequences make the various processes easy to understand, follow, and apply.

Readers of Fly-Tying will learn every skill necessary to tie flies using many different materials, including:

Thread
Tinsel
Floss
Wool
Dubbing
Hair
Quill
Feathers

Introductory chapters teach aspiring fly tiers about the tools of the trade, while a chapter titled “The Finished Fly” explains how to use what they have created. Learning the various techniques one-by-one throughout the text will help fly tiers of all backgrounds and levels of expertise to tie hundreds of different patterns.

With a new color photo insert, foreword by David Klausmeyer, and note from Nick Lyons, a whole new generation of tiers will benefit from the reintroduction of this authoritative book more than fifty years after its original publication in 1963.

Review Text

  • By Mr. W. Nicol on 27 June 2014

    Sorry to say but this is a reprinted edition from the 60's. As such the photographs depicting the various techniques are dated and more restricted than in recent Fly-Tying manuals. I have no doubt that Helen Shaw was a fantastic fly fisher and tyer but this book is limited and I would not recommend.
