'Tying Emergers' by Jim Schollmeyer and Ted Leeson

Kent Lufkin

Remember when you could remember everything?
I stumbled across this recent book the other day and was immediately impressed by the wealth of information in contains on tying and fishing these wonderful flies. Among its 217 patterns from tyers worldwide are two by our very own Paul Dieter.



Two of fly-fishing’s most well respected writers collaborate once again, this time discussing emergers. Emergence is itself a behavior, and it puts the tier in a challenging and rather unusual position¾not that of imitating a fixed and recognizable form of the insect, but rather of representing a process. This book shows you how, including: emerger design and materials, basic tying techniques, many specialized tying techniques, fly patterns, and more. When you invest in a book by these two authors you know what you will get up-to-the-minute information, well-written text, and superb photography, Tying Emergers will not let you down.
iagree iagree I was thumbing through this book today , Kent. This book is very well written , has lots of photo's and how to's. It went on my "Santa's list".
Great gift for the tyer friend or if you've been good- Yourself...

This is another great book by Schollmeyer & Leeson. These two guys are really on a roll with the best how-to books available on their chosen subjects.

I can't think of another book that even approaches the scope and combined quality of presentation and production of their Benchside Reference.

Thanks for reminding me to add this to my Christmas list.

I don't buy very many fly tying books ... well, ok, I buy some, but I'm far more likely to buy hackle I don't need than fly tying books I don't need. ;)

I bought this book, though, because I thought it had a great combination of fly patterns and thoughts on tying, especially including shucks, which I have yet to learn to tie to my satisfaction.
