Books, books & more books... (and some BUG-BOND)
Hot off the press are 3 new books by Barry Ord Clarke... Part of a new series of books published by Paul Morgan of Coch-Y-Bonddu books.
The "Proven Patterns" series kick off with two books Sea-trout River & Saltwater and a third covering Pike... They are priced at £3.95 each which is less than a pint of beer in most pubs... They are well produced and well illustrated... Without a doubt using Barry's unquestionable talent behind the lens which is only matched by his talents as a fly-tyer.
The tying instructions are clear and concise... Patterns provided by tyers including such names as Ad Swier, Steve Silverio, Simon Graham, Dougie Loughridge, Ulf Hagstrom, Steffan Jones, Illytd Griffiths and Barry himself are both a mix of classic and innovative flies.
I have to say that I'm a little more than pleased that BUG-BOND gets more than a passing mention... In fact in a couple of the books BUG-BOND is part of the staple diet for the patterns. The books can be ordered direct from Paul Morgan at www.anglebooks.com and I would heartily recommend them... With 5 further books in the wings I can't wait!
