Blurb Books for the Fly Tyer

Over the years, I’ve been growing my library of fly tying books from the usual sources, book stores, ebay and amazon, but there is a small niche of book popping up over the past couple years using print-on-demand technology. There is a tradition of self publishing books with-in the fly tying membership. Mostly this comes from some niche aspects of fly tying, and the ability to make small affordable printings. because it is usually the fly tyer who has to front to money for their book, many of these are small runs and hard to find. That’s where services like Blurb come in. Blurb allows an author to create a book and to print it as needed. The quality of the finished books is quite similar to what you will find in book stores, provided the author took the time to edit the book carefully. I’m looking forward to seeing more book emerge through the service, and here are five I’ve already added to my library.

This 154 page book takes you on a visual journey as I draw/paint 365 fishing flies every day for a year. I decided to self publish this book through Blurb, who is a print on demand publisher. The book quality is superb. I am offering the book in two versions, soft cover or hard cover with a dust jacket.
