Wet Flies: Fishing & Tying
Wet Flies: Fishing. My dear reading fly fishing friends, please accept my invitation to discover the joy of fishing wet flies. We begin with a tale, then discuss everything required to fish wet flies. It's become a bit of a lost art, but the rich tradition, unknown to many, is abailable here. Join me in exploring and practicing wet fly fun!
Wet Flies: Tying explains tying techniques, materials and proportions, while teaching effective wet fly tying skills. This is a progressive book. It starts by diagramming and tying a basic soft hackle, then adds other bits and techniques to arrive at what must be called gaudy wet flies. You can jump in where you'd like, of course, but the beginning is a very good place to start.
