Fly Tyer magazine's January/February 2007 cover.

Fly Tyer is an American magazine dedicated to the subject of fly tying, the art of tying materials to a hook for the purposes of fly fishing. Published four times a year, Fly Tyer is currently the largest fly-tying magazine in terms of circulation. It employs "perfect binding" instead of stapled pages, and usually features a close-up image of a fly on its cover.

The magazine is edited by David Klausmeyer, author of Unnaturals: A Practical Guide to Tying with Synthetics, Trout Streams of Northern New England and Tying Classic Freshwater Streamers: An Illustrated Step-by-Step Guide, among other works. Fly Tyer is an asset of Morris Communications, which also owns publications such as Gray's Sporting Journal, American Angler, and Saltwater Fly Fishing.

History[edit]

Fly Tyer was spun off of American Angler magazine in 1995, when it became clear that the market would support a fly-tying specific publication. Its success has proven the desire for fly tying content. Fly Tyer was also the original name of the publication that became American Angler.
