    Hi Michael,
    Is your book available here in the USA?
    I’m a retire senior in southwest Oregon and a fly tyer. Would love to know more about the “Optic Flies” as well as tie some and fish them.

      Hi Steven
      Unfortunately the book is not available in the USA, but I’m sending worldwide. Postage is 7,26 Euro. I’m working on an e-book version in the moment. Hopefully it will be available on Amazon soon.
      All the best,
