- Additional Information
DetailsIn this new book, Roger Fogg presents a detailed exposition of the wet-fly, giving much of its history and the varying opinions and experiences of its proponents, as well as much material on patterns and tying. This is complemented by an equally detailed account of fishing techniques and methods. "Wet-Fly Tying and Fishing outlines four categories of wet-flies, and describes how to dress them and how to fish them with specialized tackle on rivers and stillwaters. Flies such as Snipe and Purple, Orange Partridge, Rough Olive, Claret Bumble, Heckham Peckham and Peter Ross figure in this book, along with many other successful patterns. Not only does the author expertly describe how to tie and fish them, he also provides fascinating historical background... the author imparts the knowledge that we can gain from past masters such as W.H. Aldam, James Chetham, Charles Cotton, H.C. Cutcliffe, H.H. Edmonds, N.N. Lee, John Jackson, James Leisenring, T.E. Pritt, W.C. Stewart and Michael Theakston... There are times to fish the nymph or the dry-fly, but undoubtedly there are also times when the wet-fly will produce the best results." Chapters include: The historical perspective; When to fish the wet-fly; Tackle for wet-fly fishing; Wet-fly fishing on rivers; Wet-fly fishing on stillwaters; Soft-hackled flies (North-Country flies, or 'spiders'); Little winged wet-flies; Palmers; Loch, or lake flies.
