The Feather Mechanic will be available shortly, a stunning book worthy of international acclaim.
We don’t normally stock books, but for Gordon van der Spuy we made an exception because his new book, The Feather Mechanic is a one-of-a-kind contribution to the world of fly fishing and fly tying. An expert fly tier and instructor, in The Feather Mechanic Gordon, not only tells the story of his own development in fly tying with signature flair, but he also takes the reader into the function of some of the most deadly patterns in history, so you understand why they work. That way you can forget tying by pattern, go off-piste, and create your own killer flies. Accompanied by Gordon’s brilliant sketches and brilliant macro images from freshwater ecologist Christian Fry, if you are into fly tying we merely want to be a better angler, The Feather Mechanic is an essential addition to your collection.
