    Default Shewey's new Spey Flies book

    John Shewey’s new book, Spey Flies, Their History and Construction is an excellent read for those interested in the origin and evolution of these classic flies. The book has 14 chapters and includes new information on the history of old Spey flies and “Modern” examples. Chapters also provide a historical perspective of several early tyers and anglers. In characteristic Shewey style, several chapters are devoted to materials, tying and contemporary “Spey-style” flies. Hardback, 270 pages, printed in China, retail $40.00.

    I think John's books are always worth the investment. He lives and breaths his material (much like you Dennis). Ya gotta love his dedication to steelheading and fishing spey-style patterns. In one of our river adventures he gave me his Purple Spey fly...it produced magic. I'm grateful for his friendship and his generosity. Shewey is the real deal.
    Cheers, Ken
    Love the challenge...What try? No try. Just do!
