From the front flap: Thousands of trout fishermen are now truly addicted to the soft-hackled fly - the simple, sober artificial trout fly, presented to America in the author's first book on the subject, The Soft-Hackled Fly, 1975.

Novices and experts alike found the soft hackle easy to tie, easy to fish and highly effective in streams from east to west. That theme was often repeated in more than a hundred letters to the author. To one of them, he responded, "Once you become addicted to the fly, you'll find it difficult to fish anything else."
