HANDBOOK OF HATCHES Softcover Dave Hughes $24.95 Out of Stock

Fishing success comes from making wise observations on stream and acting on them right away. In Handbook of Hatches, Dave Hughes teaches how to match the hatch and not worry about identifying the insect until later, if at all, and to fish better, focus on shape, size, and color to choose the best fly for the situation.

This popular reference work is now updated with full-color photos of the insects. It is an understandable approach and useful guide to fishing hatches that covers mayflies, caddisflies, stoneflies, midges, dragonflies, boatmen, alderflies, and hellgrammites.

About the Author:
Dave Hughes is the editor of Flyfishing & Tying Journal and has written twenty-five books about fly-fishing for trout, including Trout Flies, Wet Flies, Essential Trout Flies, and Taking Trout.
