ABOUT THE BOOK
A glimpse inside the Wet Fly Box of Mike Valla! The sequel to the critically acclaimed The Classic Dry Fly Box, this book is a love letter to the Classic Wet Fly. Join Mike as he takes a tour of the history of the classic wet fly, from the Abbey to the Zulu, with 98 other stops in between. From the popular to the obscure, Valla delves into the history of these marvelous flies, masterfully weaving quotes from Gordon, Cross, the Dettes, Bergman, and other legends with his own personal anecdotes about growing up in the Catskill tying tradition. Fully illustrated with gorgeous color photography and complete with dressing appendix.
