But it's nonetheless interesting to look over the course of several centuries and the explosion of fly patterns and realize that so many fly fishers assigned near Mensa qualities to creatures with pea-sized brains. In his review of the book in Fly Fisherman, Paul Schullery was no fan: "..if you want a truly enormous list of fly patterns, and if you can settle for an absolute minimum of information about each, or if reading cramped, dot-matrix compute ...
