About the Author:

Dave Hughes is a highly respected fly-fishing writer with more than two dozen books in print, including Trout from Small Streams: 2nd Edition, Handbook of Hatches: 2nd Edition, and Trout Flies. He lives in Portland, Oregon.

From Library Journal:

The history of fly-fishing begins with wet flies, but in this country wets haven't made much headway against the popularity of dries. One reason is that they often imitate adult insects, which appear mostly on or above the surface of the water; another is that they have been fished wrongly. With three decades of fishing experience and coursework in aquatic entymology, plus leading workshops across the country and writing four books on fly fishing tactics, Hughes (Fly Fishing Basics, Stackpole, 1994) here does what he values in others: instructs and enthuses. He explains subsurface insect behavior, extensively covers fishing literature and history, presents detailed instruction on materials and tying, and teaches presentation-all with numerous photos, drawings, and 24 pages of color plates (not seen by this reviewer). Carefully researched and well written, this volume should be useful to all fly fishers and the libraries serving them.
