     Books: Trout from Small Streams - Dave Hughes new book

    Fly Fishing Books  In his newest book, Dave Hughes covers all aspects of fly-fishing for trout on small streams. He describes how fishing is different on mountain, freestone, and meadow streams and how to develop skills for each. He covers the gear, including what to put in a small stream fly box. Hughes' advice on casting technique is especially useful because trees and brush often require different kinds of casts for small streams.

     Books: TROUT FLIES: The Tier's Reference - Dave Hughes

    Fly Fishing Books  

    This book is the definitive work for trout fishermen who tie flies, a step-by-step reference for tying over 500 patterns that will take trout everywhere, in all conditions.

    Dave Hughes is an accomplished fly tier and student of entomology, but he is a fly fishermen first, and one with a gift: the ability to organize and explain in clear, readable language what can be a bewilderingly complex subject. It follows that his master work is aimed at fishermen who want their fly tying to support their fishing, and not the other way around. 

    "That the trout flies in this book are tied to catch trout, not to place on display for awed trout fishermen, sets our thinking off in a certain set of directions. We're after beauty in the eye of the trout, not in the eye of the collector. Form follows function. The most beautiful flie is the one that catches trout, and not the visually most appealing. Our goal is a a fly that looks alive in the water, not while clamped to the fly tying vise. Your fly tying should be directed by what you learn while you are out fishing."

     Books: Modern Streamers for Trophy Trout

    Fly Fishing Books  

    Modern Streamers for Trophy Trout: New Techniques, Tactics, and Patterns

    Jerry Dennis, author of "The River Home"
    "Modern Streamers for Trophy Trout" is fresh, clear, revolutionary, and probably a little dangerous. It will change the way you think.

    Book Description
    This first modern, all-encompassing manual on the art of streamer fishing teaches new techniques for catching trophy-sized trout on a fly. Streamers are the most effective of all fly patterns for the seduction of large trout, because they imitate the look and behavior of the smaller fish these trophies feed on. Sooner or later, every angler seeking the thrill of landing a trout over 20 inches--a dream fish for most--will need to understand the particular art of streamer fishing. This is the first book written about streamers in over 50 years. Despite streamer fishing's perennial popularity, it has been eclipsed in recent years by the sport's long love affair with dry flies. Revealed here in this indispensable, knowledgeable book are dozens of new streamer patterns and many proven advanced techniques for hooking huge trout, making it a must-buy for the dedicated fly-fisherman at any level of experience. Included in this guide:
    * New information on the feeding behavior of large trout and what it means for the angler
    * Detailed, illustrated casting and fishing techniques for a variety of conditions
    * Advice on netting and releasing trout safely, as well as photographing them
    * Color photographs of new and classic patterns, with complete tying recipes
    * Includes dozens of how-to illustrations
