More Information
Much has been written about fishing dry-flies, nymphs & lures but far less attention has been paid to wet-flies [which can, very broadly, be defined as artificial flies used under the water]. This fascinating book sets out to redress the balance. As the author clearly demonstrates, wet-flies still catch trout in spectacular fashion & are as effective today as ever they were in past centuries.

Wet-Fly Tying & Fishing outlines four categories of wet-flies, describes how to dress them, & how to fish them with specialized tackle on rivers & still waters. Flies such as Snipe & Purple, Orange Partridge, Rough Olive, Claret Bumble, Heckham Peckham & Peter Ross feature in this book, along with many other successful patterns. Not only does the author describe how to tie & fish them, he also provides historical background information about these flies.

This remarkable book does not promote wet-flies at the expense of dry-flies & nymphs. Rather, it shows how each type of fly has a complementary role to play. There are times to fish the nymph, or the dry-fly, but undoubtedly there are also times when the wet-fly will produce the best results.
