5.0 out of 5 stars One of best fly tying books available. 18 May 1996
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book has a number of unique or different ideas on how to tie a particular fly or part of a fly. It's really not a "production" fly tying book. It's more of a fly tying book for those who have some familiarity with fly tying. The ideas are very practical and can be performed by intermediate tyers. I would not recommend this book as a first or second fly tying book, but it is a great book for someone who has done some fly tying and wants a different perspective. Frankly, a must read book for fly tiers.

This book is dynamite for the skilled fly tyer as well as the beginner. A K Best shares with you the little twists and turns of fly tying that the others skip over or don't think are important enough to mention. He also shares with you his techniques that will make you not only faster but much more proficient. I highly recommend this publication.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as it gets. 15 Mar 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I had been tying for a few months when I came upon this book. Until that time I had trouble finding sound instruction. The instruction I did receive was usually at club meetings or from the occasional video. This book made it very clear how flies where to be constructed. This advice on tools is very helpful. And the insight on material selection was also extremly helpful. This is one of the best books on fly tying period. Also he has a selection of videos out that are the best I have seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best SECOND book out there! 3 Jun 2000
By Robert A. Terrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
"Production Fly Tying" is the second book you should have in your library (the first being a good beginners book with a few patterns). "Production Fly Tying" doesn't have many complete patterns in it, and the few that are in the book have to be pieced together from section to section, but it has some of the best tips a tyer could hope for. A.K. Best gives the reader tips he has learned from his years of professional tying. Each tip is extremely helpful. Best seems to focus on tips that make it easier and faster for the tyier to increase production while not skimping on the quality of the fly. Best always has plenty of tips on how to improve the action and use of your flies. This is simply a great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maybe the best book on the technique of tying? 10 May 2000
By Michael J. Edelman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
As noted, the title is very misleading; maybe it should have been called "how to tie the most useful flies in your box in the most efficent way".
Like most tyers, I have dozens of books; there's Marinaro, Kauffman, Proper, and on and on, but this one book probably taught me more about how to actually tie than any other book. Best is a production tyer, but the same techniques he uses to tie a hundred dozen of some pattern are just as useful for the fisherman who needs a dozen assorted flies for a weekend trip.
The descriptions are marvelously clear and the photos reveal every detail. This book and a good vise are probably the first two things a beginner should buy.
