Hi! I'm Dave Hughes. I am author of more than 20 books about fly fishing for trout. See the "Books" page for the full list and descriptions.

My latest book, published in January, 2009, is Nymphs for Streams and Stillwaters, and has almost 400 pages of text and 1,000 color photos of naturals, nymphs, tying steps, and the types of water and ways in which you'll want to fish them.

I have written articles for such diverse magazines as "Salmon, Trout, Steelheader," "Flyfishing & Tying Journal," "Fly Rod & Reel," and "Fly Fisherman." I wrote the "Fly Fishing Success" column for "Fly Rod & Reel" for five years; those articles, and many others, were gathered into the book Taking Trout. I have been a contributing editor to "Field & Stream," have written for the classy "Gray's Sporting Journal," and for eight years was editor of "Flyfishing & Tying Journal."

See the About Dave page for a brief biography of my life and how I got into fly fishing.
