Making Light of your Fly box, 26 Jan 2009
I always smile when I see the name O'Reilly my mind goes back to Fawlty Towers, but that is where the smile ends, Pat O'Reilly's book Matching the Hatch dispels even more myths about fly fishing. Pat's magic twelve in four sizes of each pattern plus four other patterns in two sizes each pattern, should and will cover most fly fishing situations. Fiftysix flies in total, they will not make the medium size box look overfull.
Pat makes Entomology a pleasent experience, Chris Ogborne does the same, Oliver Edwards is the Doyen of Entomology they all make entomology an enjoyable experience and a well worth part of Fly Fishing, it ain't difficult and it does make for a much better fishing day.
