wet flies 400 patterns and techniques

wet flies 400 patterns and techniques by Ken Sawada


I got this one in the mail a couple days ago, I was super stoked to open it up and start going threw the pages of what was sure to be total fish candy!

after a very short preface there are 400 fly patterns that follow. in the last part of the book it has a small step by step section on 10 patterns followed by a couple pages on materials and hooks. then of course an index.

The photography is extremely well done. now, as far as the patterns go he does not stray to much. where he really shines is in his use of materials. he does a lot of patterns with some really cool feathers and it really get's the creative juices going!

in regards to the step by step section I think there are other books/dvds that do a much better job, Shewey, marty and dec's dvd and so on.

I would say that this book would be a real good addition to your collection. that being said I would not pay the $350 that most copies you find go for. In honesty if you could get it for under $100 i would say go for it.
