2006 Edition, signed by the author.
The book is stunningly beautiful, lists 300 tube fly patterns and contains step-by-step instructions for 18 of these flies. The images are impeccable and very high quality, shot in the usual Sawada style, colorful and detailed on a black background and a perfect starting point for a tyer who wants to tie the flies.
Sawada also lists materials for the flies, and you can easily follow the lists and images to tie the flies yourself. The flies are fishing flies, fancy and gaudy as they may seem, they are still tied for fishing and the author adds a single line telling how the flies can be fished and under what conditions.
The text is in both Japanese and English as it's normal in Sawada's books, and his English translations are as quirky as always. Not impossible to understand or follow, but sometimes unwillingly funny.
This does take the top score away from the book, but it still earns a Global Class rating, and if you're a tube or salmon fly fan, you should seriously consider finding yourself a copy of this book.
