Gerald Bartsch also has a great DVD on tying Spey flies. Does a great job explaining how to mount Bronze Mallard wings. I still watch this one periodically. It will run you less than $30.00.
Sheweys Spey and Dee can be had for around $100 if you look around and find deals. I got mine for half that. For spey and dee flies it blows his Steelhead Flies out of the water. I reccomend getting all three Shewey books. They are the best books in my library for SBS and technique.I am trying to compare Shewey's "Steelhead Flies" book to Verveka's "Spey Flies". Shewey's "Spey and Dee Flies" currently is a little too pricey for me.
I think the recommendations previously posted were comparing Shewey's "Spey and Dee Flies" to Verveka's "Spey Flies". So for someone starting their journey into the world of spey flies which book should be my initial investment - "Steelhead Flies" by Shewey or "Spey Flies' by Verveka? Or something else?
Thanks again for any recommendations and my apologies for any misunderstandings.
