Over the past 7 years, Greg Senyo developed an overwhelming customer base through his company Steelhead Alley Outfitters; the demand for many of his patterns has surpassed the supply. Because of this, he has generously written a step-by-step how-to guide to tying your own flies. Modern Steelhead and Salmon Flies will highlight 35 of the author’s signature and proven steelhead flies used across the Great Lakes, Pacific North West, Canada, Alaska – also Atlantic salmon and Lake Run Browns, tapping into and keeping up with today’s current and growing synthetic material market. Each fly design will be a visual and simulating guide through high resolution and complete step-by-step photography.
Modern Steelhead and Salmon Flies will teach you how to work with synthetic materials that include the use of shanks, heavy wire, fish skulls and fish Masks, synthetic hackles and hair, new age flash, while also incorporating beads/metal components, forming and using new epoxy techniques, Copic air brushing and dying techniques, and a host of signature synthetic fibers and dubbings. With these new skills, the potential and creative possibilities of each fly-tying project will be greatly increased, while still maintaining traditional fly-tying disciplines.
