Blacker's Art of Fly Making is a book written by William Blacker, an Irish fly tier and tackle dealer, and first published in 1855. The book is considered a classic in the field of fly fishing and fly tying, and it is widely regarded as one of the most important works on the subject from the Victorian era.

In the book, Blacker provides detailed instructions on how to tie a wide variety of flies, including traditional patterns and his own original designs. He also offers advice on selecting and preparing materials, as well as tips on fishing techniques and fly presentation.

One of the most significant contributions of Blacker's Art of Fly Making is the beautiful color plates that showcase the different fly patterns. The plates were created by the renowned artist, J. B. Fleming, and they are considered some of the finest examples of fly pattern illustration.

Another important aspect of the book is Blacker's discussion of the principles of fly design and construction. He was known for his innovative use of materials and techniques, and his ideas on fly design influenced many other fly tiers of his time and beyond.
