Donald Downs was an expert fly-tyer with a career stretching over many years. Designed rather in the manner of Alfred Wainwright's famous fell-walking guides, this attractive facsimile of a handwritten notebook gives excellent drawings and step by step instructions. It will be invaluable to all fly-tyers for its practical content, and no doubt treasured in years to come, simply for its thoroughly satisfying appearance.
