New Digital Publication
Based on the sold-out print title, A Compendium of Canadian Fly Patterns by Robert H. Jones & Paul C. Marriner, Fly Patterns of Canada presents more than 1,600 fly patterns illustrated in full colour, each with its own page, patterns for scores of species from coast to coast. Recipes for several hundred more (typically variations) are found in an Appendix as well as tying instructions for the more challenging patterns. It's formatted as an interactive pdf, reflowable ePub or mobi file, with a variety of interactive features. I recommend the pdf for tablet and larger screens. The mobi file and a Kindle app work very well in phones. Changes to the content focused on corrections and improved navigation.

New Digital Edition
How to Choose & Use Fly-tying Thread was prepared for UNI Products by Paul C Marriner and Gale's End Press. This 53-page digital booklet, available in ePub format for phones or eReaders, .mobi format for Kindle apps, and as a PDF optimized for tablet viewing, aims to help beginning fly-tiers understand the types and sizes of fly-tying threads and how they can best be used to tie today's incredible variety of fly patterns. UNI Products offers threads to tie everything from a 1/8" long caenis mayfly for trout to a 12" Sea Habit Bucktail for marlin.
Modern Atlantic Salmon Flies, Digital Edition, (print editions sold out) has 477 pages optimised for tablets and phones as well as laptop and desktop computers. With only a very few exceptions each pattern has its own page with a large, quality, image. Like the second print edition it features 417 fully-described patterns, with colour photos and recipes for about 40 more; an increase of almost 25% over the first edition. Text-only descriptions are typically variations of patterns with an image. Two new patterns have been added and one that appeared in the first two print editions deleted. Recipes and images of many salmon flies can be found on the web, but few are shown as tied by the originator; more than 75% of the patterns in Modern Atlantic Salmon Flies are.
The print edition of Atlantic Salmon: A Fly Fishing Reference appeared in 2006 and quickly sold out. A revised and updated edition is now available here as a PDF and from Amazon for Kindle or Kindle apps.
Atlantic salmon angling is intimidating to some, challenging for most, and second-nature to a few. To help the first two groups, and entertain (perhaps intrigue) the last, Paul Marriner has distilled more than fifty years of experiences on some 150 publicly-accessible salmon rivers into Atlantic Salmon: A Fly Fishing Reference. Its 234 pages are richly illustrated with more than 300 images and illustrations. This new digital edition includes links to numerous useful sites, but its complex layout is not really phone friendly. It is best viewed on a tablet or larger screen.
Fly Fishing in Lakes and Ponds is an updated and revised edition of Stillwater Fly Fishing: Tools & Tactics in a variety of eBook formats. It features fly fishing equipment, techniques and fly patterns to catch a variety of fish species in lakes and ponds. Richly illustrated with more than 180 photos and illustrations. Includes links to a variety of useful sites as well as scientific studies of trout diets and a bibliography of selected references. More than 55 effective fly patterns are described or linked to, 43 with large images.
