I first started tying flies in 1955. My information came from a book published by the old retailer Herter'. I bought my materials from them and I recall receiving loose hackle packaged in a brown paper lunch bag. It took me longer to find the right hackle than to tie a fly. I was hooked on tying when I caught an eight-pound rainbow on my very first fly. It was a Mickey fin tied with feathers instead of hair. I have been an avid tier ever since. This hobby guided me to a career as a dentist. I love creating things with my hands. Now I relish designing new flies to match the many waters that I enjoy fishing. Colorful photos and illustrations are included on every page in this book.
