Valla’s New Book The Classic Dry Fly Box
To be released November 6 at The Arts of the Angler Show
For Immediate Release September 28, 2010
Livingston Manor, NY Contact: 845-439-4810
The Classic Fly Box is being considered, by many, as a “companion guide” to his first book “Tying Catskill Style-Dry Flies” (Headwater/Stackpole Books). 100 classics, primarily “Catskill-Style” dry flies, but has representation from the Pacific Northwest, down to California, over to Michigan, across to Pennsylvania, up to the Catskills, and over to Ray Bergman territory.
Join Mike as he takes the reader on a tour of the history of the Catskill-style dry fly. From the Abbey to the Yellow Spinner, with 98 other stops in between. Mike explores the popular to the obscure, delving into the history of these marvelous flies, masterfully weaving quotes from Gordon, Cross, the Dettes, Bergman, and other legends with his own personal anecdotes about growing up in the Catskill tying tradition. Fully illustrated with gorgeous color photography and complete with dressing appendix.
Mike will be available at the Arts of the Angler Show, at the Ethan Allen Inn, Danbury CT, on Saturday, November 6, 2010 from noon to 5PM for signing. This is another exciting book for fly tyers and those interested in fly fishing.
Published by Whitefish Press. Softcover $29.95
