Classic flys

 Hello All
Cant help but think how kool the classic flys look. Thought that maybe someday I can tie a fly that looks as good. Maybe even make some for a shadow box. kind of like a show fly.  Does anyone have a good starting reference book or other resources? Things like recipes, materials lists, etc. Of course I will have to master the fishing flies first, you know, hares era, pheasant tail, egg patterns and such. Thanks in advance.

    Sorry no one has replied, but if your looking specifically for a good refrence book/DVD, on 'Classics' i'de say Micheal Radencich"s "Twenty Salmon Flies" is worth owning. Shows many tying techniques, and I was fortunate to take a class from him years back, so look it up and add to your library!

    Agreed Bruce. All of Mike's books are part of my library. And Trout Man----- Bruce is your go to guy on this.
