"Three seconds after being asked to review this excellent new manifesto on tube flies, I thought first I tie flies with feathers and bits and pieces of natural organic animal or whatever! In my mind tubes were a crutch for those who either had no fly tying skills or were simply lazy and wanted a quick way to throw an offering together...... I was wrong, dead wrong. This book will educate and enlighten anyone who thinks they understand Tube Flies and their unique construction!"

"This is tube fly inspiration beyond anything I had imagined and so many aspects of tube fly tying and fishing is covered that I'm not really sure that I have grasped it all yet. Definitely a Global Class book in my perspective."
