Recipes, instructions, methods, and variations are included, with color photos to tie 17 flies designed to catch trout, carp, smallmouth, pike, redfish, albacore, and moreClouser’s approach to fly design begins and ends onstream, with a lot of time spent in between at the workbench. Careful observation of the behaviors, habitats, and physical features of the foods fish eat is essential to developing a fly that looks and acts like the real thing. But the pattern must also pass rigorous standards of durability, ease of casting, and most importantly, consistently catching fish before it can be called a winner. Including variations on his famous original Deep Minnow, Clouser presents recipes for seventeen of his most successful patterns for baitfish, subsurface freshwater foods, and surface flies with detailed explanations and superb full-color photographs to accompany every step. In sections devoted to materials and tying techniques, Clouser offers insight into his methods and provides a solid foundation for designing flies with confidence.
They were America’s bravest men – seasoned veterans and young daredevil pilots with dreams of glory in the air…Court Bannister, an Air Force captain overshadowed by his famous father, driven to prove his worth to his comrades – and himself…Toby Parker, the brash first lieutenant who gambled his innocence in the flames of war…and Wolf Lochert, the Special Forces major who ventured deep into the jungle to rescue a downed pilot – only to discover a face of the enemy for which he was unprepared.
Rolling Thunder is an explosive portrait of men at war, so authentic and powerful, only a veteran pilot could have written it.
It is the first of the five-book Rolling Thunder series. Next are Steel Tiger, Phantom Leader, Eagle Station, and Storm Flight.
“A taut, exciting tale of good men in a bad war. Berent is the real thing.” — Tom Clancy
