First published in 1994, Flytyer's Masterclass showcases the talents of British fly-tyer Oliver Edwards. Using his excellent knowledge of entomology and recognising specific characteristics of each species of fly he is creating, Edwards has developed his trademark of ultra realistic flies which are highly regarded for their near perfect imitation to the natural. Featuring patterns for the baetis nymph, ephemerella nymph, rhyacophila larva, and Klinkhamer special. For this new edition the publisher has commissioned new photographs by Terry Griffiths which depict each fly in stunning detail. It has been produced in a hardback spiral-bound format so that the book may be opened flat for use at the vice. A fine de luxe leather-bound edition, limited to only 120 copies, was produced simultaneously by The Flyfisher's Classic Library. Each de luxe copy carries a real fly tied by the author and set inside a bespoke mount within the front board. "It is a really seminal book by probably the greatest fly-tyer of our generation." (Magnus Angus).
