Handbook of Hatches


"Excellent ... invaluable." -- The New York Times, on Dave Hughes

Popular reference work updated with full-color photos of the insects

An understandable approach and useful guide to fishing hatches

Covers mayflies, caddisflies, stoneflies, midges, dragonflies, boatmen, alderflies, and hellgrammites

Fishing success comes from making wise observations on stream and acting on them right away. In Handbook of Hatches, 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.
