Dave Hughes has long believed that wet flies have an essential place in everyone's fly box and repertoire of trout tactics.

What is curious to me is how wet fly anglers are so fixed on tradition. Most nymph anglers are continually jamming their fly boxes with the latest and greatest contraptions - a Gold Bead Headed Rubber Leg Epoxy Thorax Olive Micro Mayfly Nymph, for instance - whereas a wet fly person will almost get weak in the knees talking about the perfect hackle for a pattern older than dirt - a Waterhen Bloa for instance.

Dave Hughes and Gary LaFontaine are my favorite fly fishing authors, because their books contain more information and less fluff than any other author I have read. At the risk of offending a great author, fly fisherman, and I'm sorry to say deceased individual, I think Dave Hughes book on soft hackles is better than Sylvester Nemes's. If you only want to purchase one book on this subject, I would buy this one. If you are collector, buy them both. Nemes is still a master, even if I beleive this one is better. If you haven't fished soft hackles and are wanting information about starting, buy this book. I have been fishing soft hackles for about three years now and I still feel like it is cheating because it is so effective. If I could only fish one fly, it would be a soft hackle. You can fish them like a dry, a nymph, or strip them like a streamer.

I get to this book after a discussion in the fly fishing forum which I moderate. In the fly tying section a member started a thread about wets and its effectiveness on fly fishing down here in Chile (South America). So as everyone talks, uploads images of wets and so on I realized that I didn't give this type of fly a chance in my 21 years of fly fishing a river, lake or spring creek. So I came to Amazon and type "Wets". The resulting list have in it this one, I pick it up because I've already read other books from the same author and love them.
It's a superb book, not only because it teach you how to tie this flies, it also teach you how to fish them!
A pleasure to read, lots of insight in Dave Huges own experience.

FlyTying and Fishing masterpiece. Really helpful tying sequences for different types of wet flies. Got me back into the soft hackles and Flymphs. A couple of hundred flies later, can't wait to fish them

One of the best books out there for any fly fisherman who fishes or is even interested in wet flyes.

Coming from the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania (James Leisenring's stomping grounds) this may border on blasphemy, but Wet Flies by Dave Hughes is THE BOOK to own on the subject of tying and fishing soft-hackled flies and flymphs. Dave is completely respectful of his predecessors work in this genre, provides detailed steps in tying these flies the RIGHT WAY, and presents the patterns and insects that they imitate in classic Hughes fashion… details woven into the fabric of fishing tales.

A "must own" for anyone interested in this method of fly fishing IMO.

Dave Hughes' book provides an excellent compendium of the types of wet flies and methods for tying and fishing them. His book references information from experts on particular styles of wet flies, such as Sylvester Nemes. Mr. Hughes usage of these experts demonstrates his ability to get the best information available, and his ability to present the information in a clear readable manner.

I think this book is destined to be a classic. The author draws from the history of wet fly fishing; so many of the fishing and tying techniques he describes come from masters of wet fly fishing. I would guess that every known technique for fishing wet flies is covered in this book.

Also, Wet Flies opened my eyes to tying and fishing flymphs.
Simply amazing book. Dave Hughes' work is always a cut above, but this is literally a one-volume encyclopedia of all things related to fishing wets; tying, presentation, equipment, history, literature reviews... it is amazing. Nemes and LaFontaine and Hidy and Skues and all in one volume, seriously. It is that good. If I could own only 2 volumes on fishing, this would be one, the other would be Handbook of Hatches by... guess who? Dave Hughes.

Amazing work.
