If you like birds, feathers, and/or fishing flies, I encourage you to get a copy of my new book titled: "Feather Craft: the amazing birds and feathers used in Classic Salmon Flies" which is now out and on the way to bookstores and fly shops everywher.

There is something for everyone in it - whether you have never tied a fly before or seen how it is done to those who've been tying for years or decades. Great photos of feathers, finished flies and step-by-step techniques for making all 16 flies shown in the book. Add to that beautiful paintings of 50 amazing birds and you have a feast for the eyes.

On this site you can order autographed and personalized copies of my book, prints of the flies, feathers, and paintings of the birds. And coming soon will be special framed prints with a fly I tied using feathers from the bird shown. A rare and unique gift for someone special or yourself.

Links to great websites to visit and causes to support for the birds and fisheries. Sources for materials, both genuine and substitutes, to help your quest for just the right material to tie your own special work of art.

Free information includes downloads for the Body Divider Tool I use in the book. Also complete pattern listings for all 16 flies. Each is shown separately on a full page with a large image of the finished pattern. See how to make and use the "Feather Sandwich" tool for making substitute wings for the "Black Argus" fly and for Peacock Pheasant feathers.
Whatever your interest keep in touch and check back often.

Have fun and keep in touch!
