Classic Dry Flies: Mike Valla’s New Book


September 29, 2010

Junior and I love classic flies and were delighted to see the arrival of this new book by Mike Valla, whose flies we’ve posted pictures of a few times in the last year. The great part about this book–in addition to Mike’s work of course– is that the royalties are all being donated to the Catskill Fly Fishing Museum, a cause that’s near to our hearts as well. For more information you should head over to Whitefish Press. Apparently there are also some pre-release, limited edition copies too though rumor has it they’re going quickly.
