Overview

An authoritative guide to choosing, presenting, and tying the best underwater flies for trout.
Although the idea of using underwater flies is as old as fly fishing itself, modern anglers and entomologists have vastly expanded our knowledge of what trout eat underwater, where and when they find these tasty morsels, and how better to fool the trout with under-water imitations. Tom Fuller's unflagging curiosity about the art of fly fishing, and his impatience with the narrow confines of dry-fly fishing, have led him to experiment with and expand on the traditional and modern methods of fishing underwater flies. The result of his nearly lifelong interest is this book, the first comprehensive guide on the subject. Nymphs, emergers, streamers, and traditional and new wet fliesFuller covers them all, both in still water and swift, including new and improved patterns for dressing nymphs, streamers, and other imitations. And no matter how good a fly-caster you are or how perfect your imitation, you won't catch trout if you don't know where to find them. Underwater Flies for Trout tells you where to look for trout, how to approach them, and how to present artificials in a lifelike manner. 60 black & white photographs, 4-page color insert, 82 black & white illustrations, index.
