Default Dave Hughes Speaks in Mountain Home, AR

SPEND a day with noted fly fishing author Dave Hughes in Mountain Home on Saturday November 12.

Hughes, the author of more than 20 books and fly tying, is highly regarded as an entertaining and knowledgeable speaker.

Thanks to the North Arkansas Fly Fishers and the Trout Nature Center the seminars, held in the Mullins Lecture Hall on the ASU campus in Mountain Home are free to the public.

The day’s program includes:

9-10:30: Reading water/break.
10:30-12: Match the Hatch Simplified.
12:00 – 1:00: Lunch
1:00-2:30: Nymph Fishing Simplified/break.
2:30-3:30: Tying nymphs.
3:30-4:00: Q&A.

Dave Hughes is author of more than 20 books about fly fishing. They include the classic Western Hatches with Rick Hafele, American Fly Tying Manual, Handbook of Hatches, Reading Trout Water, Dry Fly Fishing, Nymph Fishing, and the massive reference Trout Flies. His latest book, published in 2009, is Nymphs for Streams and Stillwaters. His next book is Pocketguide to Western Hatches, due out in fall of 2011.

Born in Astoria, Oregon on the 4th of July, 1945, Dave worked his way through college at jobs specializing in the Three Ds–Dirty, Difficult, and Dangerous: mink ranches, tuna canneries, and shrimp boats. He graduated from the University of Oregon in 1967, from Army Infantry Officer Candidate School in 1968. Dave served one-and-a-half years in Viet Nam.

Dave is an accomplished amateur aquatic entomologist. His hobbies include collecting, identifying, and photographing the aquatic insects that are fed upon by trout, as well as tying and fishing the flies that match those insects and fool those trout. His articles on fly fishing have appeared in Field & Stream, Gray’s Sporting Journal, Outdoor Life, Sports Afield, Fly Fisherman magazine, American Angler, and Fly Tyer. Dave served as editor of Flyfishing & Tying Journal for eight years, and is currently Elements of Success columnist for Fly Rod & Reel, essayist for Northwest, Southwest, and Eastern Flyfishing, and Minor Notes columnist for Flyfishing & Tying Journal.

Dave was founding president of Oregon Trout in 1983, and was awarded life membership in the Federation of Flyfishers in 1985. He was awarded the Pete Hidy honorary life membership in the Flyfishers Club of Oregon in 1992 for his literary accomplishments. Dave received the prestigious Letcher Lambuth Angler Craftsman Award in 2008 from the Washington Fly Fishing Club. He is also a life member of his home club, the Rainland Flycasters in Astoria, Oregon.

Dave lives in Portland, Oregon with his wife, Japanese fly fishing writer Masako Tani, and their daughter Kosumo.

Cool! I've read a few of Dave's books, and he seems like a really nice guy. I get more useable info from his books than most other authors, and that's why I own them.

Frank: I agree, Dave is an excellent author, I just wish this presentation was a little closer to WY.

I have a special affinity for Dave Hughes simply because of his book "Essential Trout Flies"....I wasn't even interested in tying at the time I bought that book but just wanted to read everything I could find about the various flies. What I love about that book was Dave's comments on every style of fly...how he fished them and why he fishes them this way. Forget about the tying instructionals which were also solid - that was the first book that really made me think and opened my eyes about the reasons why certain approaches work. This guy is legit and if he ever comes around my way - I'm there.

Even though I'm overseas one day I might run into him either here or possibly in The USA,as over the years many have others have visited here.
