I've reviewed both books

... for the Fly Anglers OnLine site. Go to, click "Features" from the menu on the left of the home page, then click "Stu Farnham Books" , scroll to the bottom of the page, and click the link for previous reviews.

I prefer the Shewey book as well. There's more information on tying techniques, more information on fishing strategy, and it's a beautiful book. The Mann Gillespie book has more patterns but is fundamentally hampered by the computer-generated graphics used in lieu of photographs.
