The second edition of this important book focuses on one of the most crucial aspects of the fly-tyer's art: color control. It is the most important book devoted entirely to the subject-an indispensable and practical handbook by one of America's finest and most respected professional fly tyers.
A. K. Best explores the equipment and supplies needed for accurate and safe dyeing and bleaching--most of them commonly available. Then he progresses on such subjects as:

  • Body Feathers
  • Bucktails
  • Deer and Elk Hair
  • Calf and Squirrel Tails
  • Furs
  • Bleaching
  • Dye Recipes
  • Color Removal
  • Stripping Quills
  • Fur Blending

A. K.'s new material in this second edition augments the original with over a decade of new tips, techniques, and refinement. Dyeing and Bleaching is an indispensable book for all fly tyers who want more precise colors for their fly patterns.
