Title: Guide Flies Author: Tim Rolston Size: 244mm x 170mm, 154 pages ISBN: 978-0-620-58617-7 (print)
For a fly fishing guide it isn’t enough that the patterns they use are effective, that is a financial necessity, if they are not and clients fail to connect with fish, the erstwhile guide is likely to be looking for alternative gainful employment some time soon.
In “Guide Flies”, Tim Rolston, Cape Town’s pre-eminent trout fishing guide gives up the secrets to success. Not only in terms of the fly patterns he uses, but equally and perhaps more importantly the methods of their manufacture. The book is littered with gems of information on tying and fishing these flies, how to modify them to suit your own needs and how to insure that they are not simply effective but equally durable.
“Guide Flies” also considers in detail the thought process behind the design of various key patterns and anecdotal evidence of real “on the water” successes and failures that have led to the development of the patterns illustrated.
Guide’s tie flies for their clients and clients come in all shapes, forms and skill levels, which means that the flies detailed here are applicable to everyone, expert and beginner alike. Not demanding of complex tying procedures, fancy tools or tricky to obtain materials “Guide Flies” will allow any trout angler, on rivers or stillwaters, to manufacture a selection of patterns which cover most of the bases and equally to understand why they should work and when.
All beautifully illustrated with clear full colour graphics and an accompanying disc of video clips of the various key techniques used.
