Peter Gathercole

Widely acknowledged as a classic work on the subject, The Handbook of Fly Tying is written by one of Britain's leading fly dressers, and includes:

  • choice of equipment and materials
  • essential preparatory techniques
  • in-depth instruction for tying tails, ribbing, hackles and wings
  • superb step-by-step colour photography

'I have read many books on fly tying in my time and this one rates as the best instructional book yet. For anyone starting to tie flies, or anyone wanting to know the correct way to do this or that, I consider this the best instructional book they can purchase' The Ulster Angler

'This is an absolutely super book with everything shown in step-by-step pictures. By slowly following the pictures, you can hardly go wrong.' Yorkshire Post

'Here are step-by-step instructions aided by the best sequence of colour photographs I have seen. Anyone who reads and absorbs the contents of this book cannot but become a better fly tyer. Thoroughly recommended.' Warwickshire & Worcestershire Life

'A fine example of the ‘how to do it’ type, and all aspects of fly tying are covered. Fine colour plates show each operation from a position behind the tyer's hand, with a clear and understandable text throughout.' Tackle and Guns

'This book succeeds through the superlative quality of the photography, meticulous production and attention to detail. Peter Gathercole is undoubtedly both an expert photographer and an extremely accomplished fly dresser.' Fly Dressers Journal

'Anyone contemplating starting fly tying could do no better than have a copy of this book to follow. Great for all levels.' Trout Fisherman
