Poul Jorgensen has developed a legion of fans for his salmon and trout patterns, which have stood the test of time on waters around the world. Jorgensen launched his career with two books in the 1970s, Salmon Flies and Modern Fly Dressings for the Practical Angler. In response to the demand for updated treatments of these classics, Stackpole has released new editions of both.
Poul Jorgensen's Favorite Flies is a revised, expanded version of Modern Fly Dressings for the Practical Angler, with full-color, step-by-step photos of selected patterns for trout, bass, pike, steelhead, and sea trout. More than 150 recipes are included.
