Inhaltsangabe: According to Steve Raymond, tying flies requires imagination and skill, creativity and discipline, patience and vision.” But for the fly fisher, tying flies is more than that it is the creation of a living insect from fur, feathers, or synthetic materials and is an art and a passion.
Blue Upright discusses the fly patterns that have served Steve Raymond most faithfully over the years. There are well-known and famous flies, such as the Crazy Charlie; there are flies that wouldn’t be recognized outside of the Pacific Northwest; and, more interestingly, there are flies of his own creation, which he uses alone or shares with only a few close friends. Here, he shares not only the flies but also the stories that go along with some of those flies, which include the Carey Special, Thompson’s Delectable Chronomoid, the Green Machine, and the Blue Upright.
Each of Steve Raymond’s favorite flies call to mind memories of landscapes, anglers, and fish that have passed through his life, and each of his stories will appeal to beginners and experienced fly tyers alike.
Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen. Our books for anglers include titles that focus on fly fishing, bait fishing, fly-casting, spin casting, deep sea fishing, and surf fishing. Our books offer both practical advice on tackle, techniques, knots, and more, as well as lyrical prose on fishing for bass, trout, salmon, crappie, baitfish, catfish, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
From the Back Cover:
For the fly fisher, creating images of a living insect from fur, feathers, or synthetic materials is an art and a passion requiring “imagination and skill, creativity and discipline, patience and vision,” according to renowned fly tyer and author Steve Raymond.
The fly patterns in Blue Upright are among those that have served Raymond most faithfully over the years, the favorite flies of a long angling life. Some flies, such as the Crazy Charlie, are widely known; others are relatively unknown outside of the Pacific Northwest. Included are some of his own patterns which he uses alone or shares with only a few close friends. Let him share some of his fly recipes and warm-hearted, crisply detailed fishing stories with you as he describes the Carey Special, Thompson’s Delectable Chironomid, the Green Machine, and, of course, the Blue Upright, among others.
All of Raymond’s personal favorites evoke vivid memories of the landscapes and the anglers (and the fish) that have passed through his life, images guaranteed to appeal to both beginning and experienced fly tyers. As followers of the hobby will
confirm, tying flies need not be an art of perfection when the only critics that matter are the fish.
