In Tying Furled Flies, author Ken Hanley introduces readers to furling, the technique of twisting materials together. Furling has unlimited potential for creating distinctive mottled and variegated patterns to imitate some of the common (and not so common) foods that trout, bass, and steelhead feed on. Hanley offers insights on how to fish these patterns using techniques from standard presentations to more radical "puppeteering" to entice fish to strike.About the Author:
