    I am new to fly tying. I fell in love with fly fishing when a friend began teaching us the technique for a fishing trip to Colorado. I live in Texas where trout are very scarce, but bass flourish here and love flies. I am an old crafter and I wanted a specific hands-on book to teach me fly tying for bass. I got this book as a gift from my Amazon wish list. I immediately read this informative book from cover to cover. Bass Bug Basics is highly readable plus it has easy to follow step-by-step directions with pictures that clearly illustrate each technique (highly important to those of us trying to learn this new craft). It is a beautiful book that would make for an interesting table topper, but mine stays busy at the workbench. I found it accessible to the new tier (me), but think the specific deer hair tying instructions would be valuable to an advanced tier who wanted to expand their techniques. Good fishing.

    Before I bought this book, I was scared to tie with deer hair.

    After I read it, I was showing off bugs at the next fly club meeting.

    A couple months after that, I was asked to be a FEATURED tyer at the club. (I tied a stacked hair frog in 4 colors including stripes and a white belly)

    Mr Likakis walks you through every technique. Just follow along and be prepared to make a mess.

    He makes things much simpler than other tyers (like Chris Helm).
