Here's what one angler who has had a sneak preview of book has to say about it:
"I got to see a copy at the FFF Conclave in Loveland. Great book. The photography is outstanding. There are so many midge patterns, you would be hard pressed to tie them all. Every possible midge situation is covered. Can't wait to get my own copy."--Jerry, www.flyfisherman.com
You can get your own peek of the book at Herman DeGala's website, flytyingclips.com.

improve their timing and efficiency.
1. Learn or refine your double haul by casting on the grass, and taking the time to stop in between your back and forward casts to think about what you are doing.
2. Cast with only a few fingers (thumb, pointer, and middle) holding the rod grip to force you to increase line speed through the haul only.
3. Use only the top half of a fly rod to learn to haul more efficiently. String your line through the guides of the half rod. Since you have no handle, hold the rod with your pointer finger stretched along the blank.
Tom Rosenbauer, marketing director at Orvis, received his copy of the book and writes:
“I got a copy of Mike Valla's book yesterday and I was blown away. Great design, fantastic photos, and a truly amazing amount of research went into this book. One of the best fly fishing books I've seen in years.”

"If you are a veteran tarpon fly angler or a novice or a wannabee, you'll want - no - you need to get a copy of Bill Bishop's new book High Rollers: Fly Fishing For Giant Tarpon. It's one of the best works on the subject.
I've been fly-fishing for tarpon since 1973 and while not completely through the book I've thoroughly enjoyed it and have learned new things about tarpon and fly-fishing for them; or have been caused to re-think many things."
