"The Fly Tier's Benchside Reference to Techniques and Dressing Styles"- by Ted Leeson and Jim Schollmeyer

Hands-down, the absolute "Bible" of fly tying techniques. 

The Fly Tyer's Benchside Reference is a massive attempt at mapping out the large territory of fly-tying techinques, and in so doing it reverses the approach taken by more conventional fly tying texts. As even a quick glance through the pages will reveal, there are very few finished flies pictured. The goal instead was to provide detailed instructions for a wide variety of techniques used in fly tying, in essence furnishing the reader with a reservoir of methods, procedures, and dressing styles that can be drawn upon to tie a full range of trout patterns. Rather than leading the tyer through complete instructions for a small number of selected flies, this book provides a collection of techniques with which virtually any trout fly can be dressed.

"There is no other work in the history of fly fishing or fly tying literature that is as comprehensive as Ted Leeson and Jim Schollmeyer's The Fly Tier's Benchside Reference. The determination and dedication needed to being, work through and complete a reference of this quality has assured them a place in our literature that is unique and that will last well beyond anyone reading and using this book today. To secure the information found here from the multitude or original sources, is a daunting and costly task. Now, for the first time, it can all be found in one place."- John Betts- Fly tying author and historian
