Description

  • Thorough and complete how-to guide for fusion fly tying
  • Shares essential techniques with clear instructions
  • Written by Greg Senyo, an expert on tying your own flies 

Do you want to learn more efficient and effective methods for fusion fly tying? Are you wondering which types of synthetic fly work best for which fish and where? If so, this guide is for you. Fusion Fly Tying highlights 35 of Senyo’s signature and tried-and-true steelhead flies used throughout North America. They are suitable for many types of fish, including Atlantic salmon, bass, and trout. Fusion Fish Tying includes step-by-step and high resolution photography that is current and easily applied. 

Over the past seven years, Greg Senyo built a massive customer base with his company Steelhead Alley Outfitters. The supply of Steelhead Alley Outfitter’s resources doesn’t quite match the demand. To address this, Senyo wrote Fusion Fly Tying. This book will teach the reader how to work with synthetic materials, especially shanks, fish skulls and fish masks, heavy wire, new age flash, and synthetic hackles and hair. It smoothly combines classic techniques with modern technology to make fishing more enjoyable and efficient.
