BOOK DESCRIPTION

This is a wonderful book from the great John Betts containing three of his famous and virtually impossible books to find in one volume: Synthetic Flies, Flies with an "Edited Hackle" and Catch the Hatch.  Noted reelmaker and author Michael Hackney notes: "This book reproduces three of John Betts' early works to a new generation of fly tiers and anglers. The originals were privately published and have become rare gems in fly tying literature. I hope John's creativity and artistry will inspire you as it has me.

 

Synthetic Flies (1980) explores the use of synthetic materials and introduces innovative materials along with tying and coloration techniques.

 

Flies with an 'Edited Hackle' (1982) examines alternative materials and techniques to traditionally hackled dry flies.

 

Catch the Hatch (second edition, 2000) was published as a stream-side guide to mayfly duns. Although reprinted here in gray scale, fly tiers will find the descriptions, sizes and coloration an invaluable aid to tying imitations."
