TYING SMALL FLIES by ED ENGLE
This is one of the most relevant fly tying books FOR COLORADO FLY TYERS to come out in many years. Ed Engle has studied tying and fishing small flies on many of our best tailwaters and primarily the South Platte River which has probably produced more tiny patterns than any river in the world.
There are nineteen chapters in the book. Covering topics such as History of the Small Fly, Hooks, Midge Larvae and Pupae, Blue Wing Olives, Tiny Parachutes, Tricos, Micro Caddis and Micro Scuds plus others!
The chapter called "POOR MAN'S CDC" is about patterns developed by Jim Cannon using snowshoe rabbit hair.
There is also information on tying Dorsey's Mercy Flies and the Black Beauty.
