Highly Regarded Fly Tying Manuals

By: The Tying Chat Participants of Sunday August 15, 1999

Note: These are in no special order. But the ones that were most frequently mentioned have an asterisk at the end of the manual name. I have tried to supply the author/s and the publishing company for your information. If you have one of these books where we don't have the author or publisher named please e-mail us so we can fill in the information. This is not a definitive list of manuals but these are 'suggested' manuals by the Fly Tiers. ~ Tom Six, (Tying Chat Host BC)
