A.K. Best, long known as one of the premier technical fly tyers, has penned a work that allows the average fly tyer, with minimal amounts of training and materials, a way of achieving necessary or needed colors in common feathers and furs used in fly tying.
Best, in his own straight forward technical way, takes the reader from step to step in the preparation, bleaching, dyeing and final processing of a number of common fly tying materials. The steps are clear and the text is laced with a number of "common sense" ideas which may not be immediately apparent to the novice (or intermediate for that matter) tyer.
A must-read for anyone going beyond the initial amateur stages of fly tying.
