Mike Mercer -
Learn the fascinating stories behind the invention of a dozen of the west's best flies with Mike Mercer, The Fly Shop's® own resident angling, travel, and fly tying guru.
His first book is more than instruction in how to tie the Poxyback patterns and Shasta watershed flies that are a staple in every fly box in Northern California and Southern Oregon. This well-illustrated book is a lesson in the fly fishing logic that preceded the revolutionary flies.
Mike developed his flies in the tradition of Gary LaFontaine, with painstaking study, trial-and-error methodology, and practical application of contemporary materials. The spiralbound edition is a workbook, intended to be used as a desktop guide to tying the patterns and as an outside-the-envelope approach to fly tying and fishing.
Deluxe Collector's Edition complete with a gorgeous slipcover and an insert of one of Mike Mercer's own tied flies. Mike will also gladly personalize this wonderful gift with any message (add your message in the comments field during checkout).
