"Carp are spooky and finicky; catching one requires a well-placed cast with the right fly. Jay Zimmerman...can help us on the latter matter with his new book "The Best Carp Flies: How to Tie and Fish Them.""--Morgan Lyle"About.com" (01/02/2015) "The photography is top notch, as are the tying instructions. World class stuff here...I really enjoyed this book from the first time I opened it up. The flies are fresh and--to me--unique. The text and photos are engaging and informational. I learned something--a lot of things actually--and got quite energized to tie up these flies and give them a try."--Bob Petti""Global FlyFisher.com"" (04/06/2015)
