Zen and the Art of Fly Tying free pdf This is a unique "why-to" book about the magic of fly tying. Heather LaFontaine-Ellison, daughter of world-renowned fly-fishing guru and author Gary LaFontaine, with "Zen and the Art of Fly Tying", the first "why-to" fly-tying book, which evokes the magic of the great indoors to be found at the tying bench. Heather, who learned to tie from her famous father, is now a commercial fly tyer and also an avid student of philosophy. Virtually all fly-tying books are how-to in theme and format, providing instruction in how to make artificial flies that will look great and fool fish. But in this unique volume, Heather LaFontaine-Ellison approaches fly tying as a relaxing and rewarding pastime in and of itself. But for her, it is more than that- tying flies is a way to focus her mind, an almost mystical way to reach inward and outward simultaneously. She finds tying flies fully as rewarding as fishing them, perhaps more so. Along the way, readers will also pick up a few tips to improve their own tying, tricks and shortcuts that have enabled Heather to engage in production tying for many years, churning out countless dozens of beautiful creations that will catch anglers as well as fish. No fly fisher will want to be without this unique, inspiring, and instructive volume.
