This is by far the most comprehensive directory of salmon flies ever published, with more than 1,800 patterns featured in its 468 pages. This is a first-class book for fishers and tyers and Chris Mann should be applauded for completing such a mammoth task for our delectation. --Trout & Salmon, December 2008
The sheer scope and ambition of the Directory is enormous and it works brilliantly. Honest, well-ordered information.... If you like salmon flies, if you fish for salmon and are seeking inspiration treat yourself! --Flyfishing & Flytying, December 2008
