Drawing from nearly three dozen sources, Nemes follows the development of the soft-hackled fly through 220 years, starting with the first mention of the red spinner mayfly pattern in Richard and Charles Bowlker's 1747 Art of Angling and ending with John Reid's 1971 Clyde-Style Flies, which covers some of the most radical trout fly designs from Scotland's Clyde River. Nemes shares 162 patterns and the best fishing advice from famous anglers from the past.
