    I bought this book and am very happy with it. It pulls together all of Kelson’s published fly patterns from The Salmon Fly, Tips, and the Land & Water Flies. To have all in one resource is great. Terry Griffiths does a fine job bringing it all together. Flies tied by Marvin Nolte (primarily) grace many of the pages, and the photography is top-notch. Throw in some photos of period-era flies from various collections and you have history brought to life. Outstanding!

    Don’t have this one yet. I’d like to have it if only for the L&W patterns. Thanks for the info, Monte.
    I really like the site. Well done.
