Collins Fishing Flies not only describes every type of fly used to catch all types of fresh- and saltwater fish, it also describes every type from every country that is currently used. This unique combination allows the fisherman to select flies that may have never been used in their area, or never used to catch that species of fish, or perhaps both, and thus allow the fish to be offered something different.Collins Fishing Flies is divided into fourteen sections:EARLY FLIESNORTH COUNTRY SPIDERSLARVae & PUPADRY FLIES AND FLOATING FLIESCUT- OR BURNT-FEATHER WINGSUPWINGED FLY SPINNERFANCY WET FLIES OR LOCH/SEA TROUT FLIESSTREAMERS AND BUCKTAILSFLIES FOR SALMON, SEA TROUT AND STEELHEADSHRIMPS AND PRAWNSSALMON DRY FLIESFLIES FOR SEA-RUN TROUT: SEA TROUT, STEELHEAD, CUTTHROAT AND CHARFLIES FOR FRESHWATER PREDATORSSALTWATER FLIESFor each fly the exact recipe is given, with hints on how to tie the perfect fly, plus a specially commissioned photograph of that fly.
