Flies for Selective Trout
Complete Step-By-Step Instructions on How to Tie the Newest Swisher Flies
Hardcover      ISBN: 1510717161
Dozens of new flies in full color from America's favorite flytier.

Doug Swisher cowrote Selective Trout, the bestselling fly-fishing book of all time. Now he's back with brand new flies.

Back in the '80s, right after Selective Trout was first published, many fly-tying books came on the market that were pushing the merits of the types of flies Carl Richards and Doug Swisher developed, like the No-Hackle Dun, Hen Spinner, Emerger, and Still-Born. Those were types of flies that had never been written about before. Then, a few years later, in the early 2000s, the emphasis switched drastically to what you would call streamer and attractor patterns.

Flies for Selective Trout covers a few of the "No Hackle Types" and many of Doug's new attractor flies, like glow in the dark, ultraviolet, brush flies, advanced pupas, and our action-dubbing versions--with wiggly legs right in the dubbing

New flies include:
No Hackle PMD
Duckquill Emerger
Mono Caddis Pupa
Velcro Green & Mean
And much more

The Swishers also include tips on how to fish the new flies, as well as where they were developed. Pick up a copy of Flies for Selective Trout to learn about all of the new materials and tying techniques that make these new flies so exciting

From the revered Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and writer, comes his National Bestseller on one of the world's oldest and most popular activities, fishing. Presented in narrative form as a conversation between a Fisherman and the Stranger, Hersey draws upon his own experiences and passion as the fisherman reflects on the age old sport, offering his own insights and thoughts. From the depths of the ocean to the creatures near the shore, Hersey perfectly answers why fishing has been such an integral part of humanity.

"Almost no one has answered "why fish?" better than Mr. Hersey . . . what he does best of all is evoke wonder."--New York Times Book Review

"Blues is, of course, about much more than the pleasures and techniqu3es of fishing; it is, as Fisherman tells Stranger, about interconnections--the ties between mankind and the natural world, among others."--The New Yorker

"Wonderful . . . He gives us a rich and vivid sense of ocean life. . . . The whole thing is as stately as a minuet, and as graceful."--Chicago Sun-Times
