Dozens of new flies in full color from America's favorite flytier. Doug Swisher cowrote Selective Trout, the bestselling fly-fishing book of all time. Now he's back with brand new flies. Back in the '80s, right after Selective Trout was first published, many fly-tying books came on the market that were pushing the merits of the types of flies Carl Richards and Doug Swisher developed, like the No-Hackle Dun, Hen Spinner, Emerger, and Still-Born. Those were types of flies that had never been written about before. Then, a few years later, in the early 2000s, the emphasis switched drastically to what you would call streamer and attractor patterns. Flies for Selective Trout covers a few of the "No Hackle Types" and many of Doug's new attractor flies, like glow in the dark, ultraviolet, brush flies, advanced pupas, and our action-dubbing versions-with wiggly legs right in the dubbing! New flies include: No Hackle PMD Duckquill Emerger Mono Caddis Pupa Velcro Green & Mean And much more! The Swishers also include tips on how to fish the new flies, as well as where they were developed. Pick up a copy of Flies for Selective Trout to learn about all of the new materials and tying techniques that make these new flies so exciting!
