I recently got this book and have been very happy with the read. It's a very good book on the history of the flies covered, tons of little known tidbits & happenings while the flies were being conceived. It over flows with great pictures you never really see any where else. If you've been wanting more information on your favorite old fly this could be the book for you, excellent coffee table book.

Just checked Amazon for it, and there's a companion book coming out 1/1/15 on actually tying a number of them. Kinda neat....

It does look interesting. Here's a link to Amazon. It has the "Look Inside" feature:
