Bob Frandsen Flies
My new book The Blacker Compendium is now available in a soft cover. (Hard cover "may "be an option in the future ) The book is 8-1/2 " wide and 11" high and has 160 pages. Descriptions and pictures of all of the Salmon flies from the 1855 edition of Blacker's The Art of Fly Making are included, as are several Ghost Flies and others. All the flies are dressed to my interpretation of Blacker's descriptions using all the correct materials of the day.
See My Photo Gallery for additional pictures of the book! I hope you'll enjoy reading the book and seeing the flies as I've had making them!

The book is published by River Fork Press, costs $44.95 plus postage, has 160 pages, about 80 flies, instruction, copies of original plates from Blacker's original book and more. Every salmon fly described by Blacker is included and has the original description and our rendition of the original recipe. The fly pictures are very large so all detail shows clearly.
