WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY
"Leeson and Schollmeyer have done all tiers a great service by collecting
numerous tying methods in onel comprehensive volume. All tiers need this
clear, concise, practical encyclopedia of tying. Leeson's simple, direct
exposition is matched by Schollmeyer's clean, illuminating photography.
There is nothing like it on your tying table. As your Benchside Reference
becomes dog-eared, you will, by necessity, become a better tier." --Darrell
Martin, Contributing Editor, Fly Rod & Reel Magazine
"There's one absolutely best way to do a fly-tying book--describe the
individual methods for applying different materials. No book has ever done
this in pictures and words better than The Fly Tier's Benchside Reference.
This massive, beautiful work is a classic that will be the standard for the
foreseeable future." --Gary LaFontaine, Author of Trout Flies: Proven
"The Fly Tier's Benchside Reference is an incredibly detailed book
that will no doubt be recognized for many decades as the definitive guide to
tying anything on a hook to create any kind of trout fly. With in-depth
discussions of over 400 tying techniques dealing with both natural and
synthetic materials, and demonstrated with more than 3,000 color photos,
there is hardly a question concerning tying trout flies that goes
unanswered." --A.K. Best, Author of Production Fly Tying
"Ted Leeson and Jim Schollmeyer have pulled off an admirable feat, producing
an exhaustive compilation of fly-tying techniques, tricks, and methods.
The Fly Tier's Benchside Reference is indeed the bench manual we have
long needed. Its lucid instructions, logical arrangement, and first-rate
photos will help any tier to expand his range of skills or solve problems at
the vise. There's no longer any excuse for ot knowing how flies are built."
--Art Scheck, Editor, Fly Tyer
"I can't imagine a wiser paring for a book of this sort: two experienced fly
tiers, one skilled with words , the other skilled with a camera. The result
is an encyclopedic fly-tying book of clear images, ideas and instructions.
What tier couldn't use that?" --Skip Morris, Author of Fly Tying Made
Clear and Simple
"The Fly Tier's Benchside Reference is the perfect title for this
splendidly well-written and illustrated techniques and dressings book! Fly
tyers, regardless of their skill and experience level, will find this book
continuously helpful!" --Dave Whitlock, renowned fly fisher, author & artist
