Northwest Classic Salmon fly tying expert Dave McNeese puts it well:

"One only has to open this lovely book to see it's value. The lengthy text on the 50 species of birds used in this book to produce gorgeous Salmon flies is crucial to developing an understanding of their function and use. The complexity of tying a salmon fly can be intimidating, and tyers often shy away from learning to tie them properly. One reason is that proper instructions are difficult to find. The remedy here are the thorough step by step photographs of all Kevins tying steps that are needed to tie 16 different Salmon flies. It's like having him in person giving you the critical information from start to finish. This book, 'Feather Craft', will make a marvelous addition to your fly tying library.
