Trout Country Flies - Bruce Staples
I bought Tying Dry Flies by Randall Kaufmann -
whose stimulators and stoneflies are some of my favorite flies of all time aesthetically - this morning for a buck at a TU flea market. It has some really badass hopper patterns with this style of tied back / bullethead elk hair. I plan to play with that soon!
