When fly fishing is your hobby, your passion, and your career is it is with Dave Hughes, you learn a lot about fish and flies. What Hughes discovered over the years is that he was constantly running into situations where the best match for the hatch was a wet fly. After too many incidents to ignore, Hughes began to question the commonly held principle that a trout willing to strike a dry fly was wasted if taken any other way, and he began a systematic look at all the stages of insects that were best matched with subsurface patterns.

He went fishing, often. He got to know some knowledgeable wet fly anglers and tried and tested his techniques and tactics and theirs. He read the fishing books and studied the entomology texts. He collected insects, took photographs of them, and tied flies. He taught seminars and wrote about what we was learning. His years of study, research and writing have resulted in a new, important resource on the subject of wet flies. 

In Wet Flies, Hughes reviews and evaluates the history and existing literature on subsurface flies- the soft hackles, flymphs, winged and wingless wets, and fuzzy nymphs. With the background in place, Hughes goes on to share his knowledge of wet flies and the insects they imitate, providing detailed descriptions, patterns, material lists and instructions for tying the flies. A solid section on fishing the flies covers the tackle and the techniques for fishing just below the surface and at mid-depth.
