Sylvester Nemes is singlehandedly responsible for the popularity of the
soft-hackled fly in American fly fishing today. The Soft-Hackled Fly,
Nemes''s first book, written in 1975, was the catalyst for the
resurgence. Now revised with ten new chapters on tiny flies and
full-color photos, Nemes shares colorful experiences at home and abroad,
the history of the soft-hackled fly, and illustrated step-by-step
instructions for tying the flies. He also describes his technique of
fishing the flies.
