Fly Tales is a different approach that the author uses in presenting his "fly tales" to which he has experienced in many different settings (fresh and salt water). Though each chapter is not very long, the author uses his experiences to create the chapter and identifies a certain fly or flies to which he found success in that particular chapter's tale - and to which he then proceeds to identify the fly and all of its parts for tying that pattern(s). Sometimes there are tying instructions provided to which I guess the author provides certain particular information to make sure the reader can tie the fly as the author describes. It is an interesting way to end each chapter. For readers who always wanted to know the exact fly pattern to which the author refers, this book does so for the reader leaving no questions on the patterns used - especially where the author indicates that the pattern had been modified to fit his fishing need. Interesting approach in a very readable book.

It's not really a how-to book, nor is it a compilation of golden hued reminiscences. It is the thoughtful distillation of nearly four decades of Scott Sadil trying to become a better fly angler, wading not only the stream and rivers of the Pacific Northwest, but also the procession of life, loves, work and family. Scott is a smart guy, and a great angler. He is also a hell of a writer, and this is his best work. Anybody who names fly fishing as their great passion would benefit from reading this book. The younger folks could get some wisdom, older guys should recognize themselves. Good tying descriptions for the fly patterns, too.

Scott Sadil's Fly Tales is refreshingly bright and authentic - at its best reminds one somewhat of an early Thomas McGuane or Ted Leeson. Not bad company ! Clear and honest writing, sometimes all to familiar, it has the ring of real truths discovered on the water.

More great stuff from one of the best writers out there. Got to admit that Scott is an acquaintance. Got to admit that I thought at first that Scott was cashing in on a bank of well written articles. We all got to make a living these days you know. So bought the book, like a good friend should, thinking that my back issues of California Fly Fisher are getting kind of yellow and no way to archive such precious prose that Scott has laid down over the years.
The book came and sat around patiently for me to sit down and take a look at it. I have read most of this stuff before so I kind of poked around at first to see how Scott had put this book together. It was amazing to see how one could just start reading most any article and get into what he was up to. I swear he has polished up every article but a better way to put it is that he took all his gems and skillfully built them into a wonderful setting. He demonstrates, like only an English teacher can, that with commitment and thought one can forge with a theme. In this case Scott's concept of the "real guy" is a thread he uses to weave his new book together, demonstrating a mastery of observation and relation. Some authors can dazzle with a flash but Scott puts on a whole light show. This book is well worth having. It's choice...you need to catch a little of Scott's stoke!
