5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book 18 Jun 2000
By ASA - Published on Amazon.com
This book taught me how to tie flies. The photos are 100% in color, which is abosolutely needed in a fly tying book. Do not buy a fly tying book in black and white! It is nearly impossible to differentiate or even see the thread from the hackle from the rib....
Each fly is tied in approx. 12-20 different steps. Randall does not leave any steps out. The book progresses from easy to difficult. Randall claims that if you can ties the patterns explained in detail, then you can tie any dry fly. I think he's right.
I went from never tying a fly in my life a year ago to tying 90%+ of my own flies. Those darn humpies still drive me nuts, although Randall describes how to ties them in great detail.
Just a warning. I saw his first edition of the book at a sporting goods store. It is in black and white. Making sure you buy the "Revised" edition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book-- make sure to get the spiral bound 19 Jun 2012
By Toothsquatch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
This is another book that is a must for the beginner. The spiral binding allows easy referencing while working. The book is older, but the patterns and techniques haven't changed. Great material explanations as well as techniques.
