By A Thread Book Review
by DUN Team
DUN knows the important history of women in fly fishing. We believe that knowing this history gives us a firm foundation to build our future. By a Thread, by Erin Block is just that. A history lesson that lets us in on a secret we already know, but many do not. Women have been involved in the world of fly tying for a very long time.
Written in a stance of retrospection, Erin takes us on the long journey of women fly tiers from the heart of the nineteenth century to today. Cleverly written and an easy read, walk through the pages of yesteryear with tiers Carrie Frost, Helen Shaw and Megan Boyd. Learn what happened to legendary Sara Jane McBride and hear about the tiers that currently live among us.
Published by The Whitefish Press, the book can be purchased from Amazon or direct from the publisher.
