1001 Fly-fishing Tips: Expert Advice, Hints, and Shortcuts from the World's Leading Fly-fishers edited by Jay Nichols and Illustrator by Dave Hall is a great book. This book is excerpt from sum of the "Worlds leading Fly Fishing" experts. Nicholas the editor is best known as editor of Fly Fisherman Magazine. As far as my feelings I can only say Wow, I really liked this book at first I thought it was just going to be a sort of list book but I was very happy to see it covers most aspects of fly-fishing in an easy accurate fun way. However, on a light note, let me be the first to tell you that I did not count all one thousand and one tips because I could not see any visible way they were represented, so I do not guarantee there is that many (but there is definitely a lot). This book does give a lot of great tips and a good overview of fly-fishing from how to remove a hook to how to restore an old dead fly. This book even goes in to saltwater tips, traveling and many other specialty concepts that help to shed light on the many intricacies in fly-fishing. Sadly they did not breach the subject of fly tying (except to say make enough or buy enough) even with a whole chapter dedicated to the fly. With all this said this book is clear concise and has many tips sprinkled in for good measure. Over all 1001 Fly-fishing Tips, is a great over view of fly-fishing and one that I would want on my bookshelf.
