Sorry I have not posted in several weeks, but I have been busy putting the finishing touches on a new ebook. The book, at the moment called "Flies For Connecticut Atlantic Salmon: How to Tie and Fish Them," accurately reflects the working title. Here are some details:
Over 300 pages of fly patterns, tying tips and instructions, and recommendations on how and when to fish each fly
11 step-by-step tutorials for the most valuable broodstock salmon flies (5 wet fly tutorials, 1 dry fly tutorial, and 5 tube fly tutorials)
Over 50 additional pattern recipes
Extensive breakdown of tying and fishing tube flies
Detailed explanations of salmon wet, dry and tube fly anatomies
Advice on selecting the proper tools and materials
Broodstock salmon fishing tips and strategies
Clickable links to bring the reader to external websites
Clickable links to navigate to external fly tying tutorials and videos
...and much more!
The book will be a valuable resource for fly tyers and non-tyers alike. It will also prove useful for those who live elsewhere, but wish to learn tying techniques for Atlantic salmon and steelhead.
A premium, feature-rich version will be available for Apple OS and iOS devices (Mac, iPad, and iPhone). For those who don't use Apple products, the book will be available in PDF form at a lower price. I hope to have the book ready before the start of the Connecticut broodstock Atlantic salmon fishing season, most likely the beginning of September.
Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks!
