9780811704724: Nymphs for Streams & Stillwaters

  • The authoritative book on nymphs
  • Step-by-step instructions for 112 useful nymph flies
  • More than 900 photos of natural nymphs, their imitations, and steps in tying those flies

    Nymphs for Streams and Stillwaters provides a sound understanding of the relationship between naturals and their imitations, and between those imitations and the trout. You'll learn what nymphs you should spend your time tying, you'll learn how to tie them, and most important, you'll learn where and how to fish them in order to catch more trout.

    Nymphs for Streams and Stillwaters is broken logically into four parts. The first part is an introduction to the way nymphing shapes itself with notes on streamside and lakeside observation, nymph selection based on what you observe, and recommendations on tools and materials for both basic and advanced methods for tying nymphs that take trout. The second part deals with the selection and detailed tying of all sorts of effective searching nymph patterns for moving water. The third part examines imitative nymphs for moving waters, tightly relating naturals to their imitations. The fourth part covers stillwater nymphs. Trout are ore often selective in lakes and ponds, and the things they eat in stillwaters are often unlike trout foods in rivers and streams.

    Hughes takes a subject that has been considered complex and confusing and makes it understandable, presenting the information that you really need to improve your tying and your fishing. Nymphs for Streams and Stillwaters is destined to be the step-by-step reference to tying and fishing every nymph you'll ever need. Filled with good advice from a trusted master of the subject, it is the most thorough and enjoyable book about selecting, tying, and fishing nymphs that has ever been written.

    Dave Hughes is a highly respected fly-fishing writer with more than two dozen books in print, including Trout from Small Streams: 2nd Edition, Handbook of Hatches: 2nd Edition, and Trout Flies. He lives in Portland, Oregon.

    Review:

    "Nobody spends more time thinking about how and why trout eat what they eat, or expresses his findings in a more useful way, than Dave Hughes. Nymphs for Streams and Stillwaters is far more than a mere fishing or pattern manual. It is a comprehensive yet economical strategy for tying, selecting, and presenting imitations of the subsurface creatures favored by freshwater fish." --Thomas Ames Jr.

    "If you want to tie effective nymph patterns for streams or lakes that cover all the major groups of aquatic insects and organize them in a simple and sensible way that will improve your fishing, then get this book." --Rick Hafele

    "Dave Hughes masterfully explores how to select the best searching and imitative nymphs for both moving and standing waters. And he provides valuable insights and photos on tying the patterns. If you're looking to boost the potency of your nymph boxes, this book belongs on your tying bench." --Rich Osthoff
