Following the success of his ground-breaking first book in this series, Barry Ord Clarke (recently voted Flytyer of the World) is sharing his latest innovations in this publication.

As with his first book, each step-by-step photographic tying sequence is linked to the online video of him tying each of the flies featured.

This gives flytyers the best of both worlds. They can work carefully at their own pace using the book, while the QR code next to each sequence takes them straight to the optional video which gives the overall visual tying lesson.

Flies included are: The Ubiquitous Nymph, Danica Mayfly Nymph,Moose Mane Nymph, Clarke’s All Purpose Emerger, Midge Emerger, Emergent Sparkle Pupa, Hares ear soft Hackle, All Fur Wet Fly, Hares Ear Parachute, Anorexic Mayfly, CDC Mayfly Dun, Mallard Slip Wings, Compara Dun, Clarke’s Caddis, Diving Caddis, Dyret, Welshman’s Button, Fluttering caddis, Red Panama, Giant Stonefly, Braided Blue Damsel, The Worm, Float Foam Ant, Madam X, Foam Cylinder Cranefly, Phantom Zonker, Gummi Grub, Silicone Fry.
