Craven's New Book!
It can be easily argued that Charlie Craven's Basic Fly Tying (Headwater Books, 2008) was one of the top instructional fly tying books ever published. And, yes, I am comparing it to all the greats! Also, with the help of Jay Nichols, one of the best looking books of its type ever put together. But I did have one complaint...purely out of my own selfishness, I wanted more of Charlies own, original fly patterns in the book. He is considered a local treasure here in Colorado and his flies are found in every one of our fly boxes. But, the first book had a different scope. It was covering more basic-skills, basic flies (hence the title). Now, his NEW book on the other hand....I can't wait to get my hands on it!
