Got myself a beautiful copy of this book just before Christmas 2014, not an original copy, but a reprint with the nice colored plates reproduced true to the original.
It is my goal to study the “old” techniques for tying dryflies, and this is a good addition to that goal.
I’ve read through the book a couple of times, and experimented with the “Detached bodies”, and I finally thin I’ve nailed it.
This fly below, is however a variation over the theme detached bodies, since no version of the yellow may is described, and since my material isn’t for tying the flies described in the book yet.
