Poul Jorgensen is an internationally acknowledged authority on flies and fly tying. His career as an author was launched by several books published in the 1970s, including Salmon Flies and Modern Fly Dressing for the Practical Angler. In response to the demand for full-color, updated treatments of these classics, Stackpole Books has published new editions of both.

Favorite Flies of Poul Jorgensen is a revised and expanded version of Modern Fly Dressings for the Practical Angler, with full color, step by step photos and recipes for more than 150 patterns for trout, bass, pike, steelhead, and sea-trout. It is intended for tiers of all skill levels and includes chapters on insects and materials. Like all of Poul Jorgensen's work, the patterns here are informed by a keen knowledge of naturals and the tying method distinguished by an economy and elegance of style that has become his trademark.

Poul Jorgensen was born and raised in Odense, Denmark, and has lived and worked in the Unite States for more than forty years. Paul Jorgensen produced the best seal substitute of ever, the Seal-Ex Dubbing, originally available in twenty-seven superb colours. Now a vintage material out of production, available in very limited quantities.
