From Art Lingren
"I wondered when I got into this if I had enough material for a book, but now complete it is 90 pages plus cover, 6 pages more than my Bill McMillan book. In addition to two Syd Glasso collections-Bob Taylor's and John Bokstroms's-the book has flies dressed by Bob Taylor and Jack Vincent from British Columbia and Garry Anderson, Dareld Thompson, and Sean Dahlquist from Washington State. All three WA guys are members of the Northwest Atlantic Salmon Fly Tier Guild. All the people that have flies in the book have been influenced by Glasso and dress flies using his techniques and his style. Bob Taylor learned from Glasso himself by sitting and watching Glasso tie when, back in the 1970s, Bob visited him in Forks, Washington. Bokstrom did not tie Glasso-style flies. But he and Glasso were good friends and Syd gave John quite a few flies that Bokstrom framed. Totem Flyfisher club member Ben Gerhke bought some of Bokstrom's Glasso plates from the estate and Ben was kind enough to let me borrow the fly plates so I could photograph them. In addition to Glasso-dressed flies, there are many fine examples of Glasso-style flies--steelhead and Spey--are in the book, some of the best I have ever seen tied. An example is Sean Dahlquist's tie of Glasso's Orange Heron that graces the book cover. Bob Clay's winter Kispiox River scene and Scott Baker-McGarva's unusual Glasso compliment close the book."
