Probasco's Favorite Northwest FliesBook - 2002
It's fun to look into the fly boxes of other fishermen to see their collections of flies, especially if that collection is hand tied by that individual. All fly tiers have their own style, so viewing a box of flies tied by another angler can be a valuable experience, providing inspiration the next time you sit down at your tying bench. Probasco's Favorite Northwest Flies: Tying and Fishing is an invitation to peek into Steve Probasco's fly boxes, giving a sampling of a few of his favorite patterns, those flies he most often uses for a variety of Northwest species, including trout, steelhead, salmon, bass, panfish, bottom fish, whitefish, shad, and carp. Some of the flies in this book are standard, time-proven patterns. these patterns were designed by Steve, his friends, and some are of unknown origin. Steve has fly-fished the Northwest's myriad waters for nearly 40 years, this vast knowledge is reflected in his selection of fly patterns. Let this collection of fly patterns entice you to experiment with materials, techniques, and ideas you will find in this book. Charge up your creativity, gather a pile of materials, and sit at the tying desk with Steve Probasco, one of the best fly fishermen and fly tiers in the Northwest.
