This innovative book is surely the most thorough and detailed investigation of the use of the small fly yet written. Selective trout, in part created by the advanced sophistication of anglers and the increased popularity of tailwaters and stillwater fisheries, have made the use of small patterns- size 18 and under- a growing necessity for successful fly fishing. Darrel Martin explores ever facet of this demanding "sport within a sport."Micropatterns- Tying and Fishing the Small Fly- Darrel Martin- Paperback- 336 pages
Chapters detail aquatic insects significant to the angler; the best tying materials, tying methods and patterns; hook choice; tackle; and the casting tactics, presentations and methods of playing hooked fish that the use of tiny flies demands. Martin's extensive use of laboratory testing has yielded surprising and important information about the strength, reliability, and performance of various small hooks. And he offers directions for making "dubbing brush" patterns and for designing "furled leaders"- leaders that represent a quantum leap in the soft presentation of small fly patterns.
