The book has plenty of large, black and white photos that is fully supported with "how to" descriptions. Describes many tying techniques from tying different types of wings (feather, fur, wet/dry), hackle selection, working with chenille etc... (I found the section on chenille near the back of the book especially useful for improving my "McGinty" fly tying technique). Good read during winter months even for you frequent tyers.
