Lefty Kreh presents a comprehensive listing of saltwater fly patterns and their application for various species of fish. As a novice fly tier, I found this book to be indispensable at deciphering the quirky names of saltwater flies. The text is sprinkled with little gems of advice on how to fish these flies. The photos are good, but they could provide more detail in places. Lefty gives lists of ingredients for each pattern, but does not give detailed step-by-step tying instructions. This is not a problem if the fly tier knows the basic methods for tying saltwater flies. The chapters could be better organized; for example, bonefish flies can be found in chapters 13, 25, and 28. The chapters are numbered in the table of contents, but not numbered in the text.
