Gary LaFontaine has automatic name recognition in the fly-fishing world—he’s known as one of the smartest and most dedicated innovators of new trout fly patterns in the latter twentieth century. His methods changed fly tying in America, and he was nowhere near done when he died of Lou Gehrig’s disease in 2002 at age fifty-six. His death was mourned around the world.

Many of the flies in this posthumous collection of trout-fly patterns are likely to become enduring standards. Authors Al and Gretchen Beatty were working with LaFontaine and tiers Paul and Char Stimpson on an instructional film in the months before the fly tier died. These are the flies that LaFontaine spoke of during filming. These are the flies showcased in LaFontaine’s Legacy.

The twenty-six patterns with proper tying instructions detailed in this book are the final legacy of a renowned American angler. Throughout the work the Beattys provide thorough tying instructions which are accompanied by vivid full-color photographs to depict the various stages of creating each pattern on the tying bench as well as the completed fly. This book documents an important piece of American fly-fishing history.
