Introduction by Dave Whitlock.

The second edition of Fly Patterns of Umpqua Feather Merchants, including an additional 450 new Umpqua flies not present in the 1995 edition. The work surveys contemporary fly patterns from tiny dry flies to sailfish patterns, all pictured in perfect detail. Great attention is paid to photographing each fly in its natural fishing position. In addition to trout, steelhead, bass and saltwater patterns, the book profiles fifteen famous Umpqua Feather Merchants contract fly designers: Thee Bakelaar, Tim Borski, Andy Burk, Bob Clouser, Larry Dahlberg, Randall Kaufmann, Lefty Kreh, Gary LaFontaine, Mike Lawson, Craig Mathews, Mike Mercer, Bob Popovics, Ed Schroeder, Shane Stalcup, and Dave Whitlock. The expanded materials section contains over 100 photographs with Tiemco hooks and Metz hackle thoroughly explained.

Light rubbing to boards, else fine.
