Mike Harding, broadcaster, comedian, experienced fly fisherman, and author of a monthly column in Fly Fishing & Fly Tying magazine, has written a guide to tying one of the most well-loved and beguiling traditions of fly: the Northern Spider. These designs of fly, conceived in the north of England around Bolton Abbey in the Yorksire Dales near Skipton, are renowned for being both simple to tie and excellent for catching fish. They are characterized by using brightly colored silk threads, and the feathers of birds like snipe, woodcock, and pheasant. Mike Harding covers some 50 variants of fly, as well as the techniques of tying and the history of the North Country tradition. The book features his own superb close-focus photography, and is laid out in the same style as The Fly-Tying Bible.

Best-known soft-hackled fly expert, Sylvester Nemes gleans the most useful tips and advice from the history of writings on the soft-hackled fly Alfred Ronalds, George C. Bainbridge, T. C. Hofland, James R. Leisenring, William H. Lawrie, G. E. M. Skues Black Spider, March Brown Nymph, Bradshaw's Fancy, Greensleeves, Lunn's Yellow Boy Drawing from nearly three dozen sources, Nemes follows the development of the soft-hackled fly through 220 years, starting with the first mention of the red spinner mayfly pattern in Richard and Charles Bowlker's 1747 Art of Angling and ending with John Reid's 1971 Clyde-Style Flies, which covers some of the most radical trout fly designs from Scotland's Clyde River.

On October 2, 1968, the Congress of the United States enacted the National Trails System Act, Public Law 90-543. The North Country Trail is one of 14 potential trails named in the Act to be studied. It would extend from the Appalachian Trail in Vermont approximately 3,200 miles through the states of New York, Pennsylvania, Ohion, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota to the proposed Lewis and Clark Trail in North Dakota. The Act calls for a determination of its feasibility and desirability for its designation as a National Scenic Trail in the National Trails System and, if it is found to merit inclusion, recommendations are to be developed for its administration and management. The study culminates with this report, which recommends establishment of a North Country Trail as a component of the National Trails System.

Wet Fly Tying and Fishing

Wet Fly Tying and Fishing

This remarkable book does not promote wet-flies at the expense of dry-flies and nymphs.

Much has been written about fishing dry-flies, nymphs, and lures, but far less attention has been paid to wet-flies, which can very broadly be defined as artificial flies used under the water. This fascinating book sets out to redress the balance demonstrating that wet-flies still catch trout in spectacular fashion and are as effective today as ever they were in past centuries.
