“Listen to the River” Volume 2.“ A new book of 16 new innovative patterns from Steve Thornton”. This new volume is packed with new un-published tying techniques not yet seen by the flytyer, including new detached abdomen tying techniques, new legging techniques and "Hair Rig" abdomens. "Hair Rig" abdomens make small insects like hatching olives, duns and spinners, realistic. These new "hair Rig" abdomens are easy to tie, yet very realistic and create a natural movement, just like the real insect.

This new tying technique provides a footprint much closer to the natural insect as it hatches or floats on the surface film.
Steve has constantly made notes on his travels about new techniques he has learnt. One technique he learnt in British Columbia and on the storied rivers of the Catskills, New York is the art of fishing streamers. This highly effective technique really does search out the larger fish in the rivers. Another technique Steve has learnt is "speed fishing". This is an absolutely fantastic dry fly style of fishing. This and other techniques are all revealed all in this book.
