Posts: 287Has anyone used this video (below) from Davey Wooton to learn to fish wet flies properly? Just wonder if it might be a good purchase.

Yes! I recommend it. It shows how to set up multi-fly rigs and how to fish them-more in the English tradition. There are other methods of fishing wets as single flies. If you are interested in learning more about fishing wets, the video will help, but there are also some books available. One is out of print but can be found, many times on ebay or at used book seller sites for a nominal price. It is The Sports Illustrated Book Of Wet Fly Fishing written for them by Pete Hidy. It also has great tying instruction as well. The other, more modern classic is Dave Hughes' Wet Flies. This book covers tying wets and fishing techniques.

Hope this helps,
Mark

Hi Mark. I just bought the brand new DVD for $24.00. It usually sells for $32 ore more. I've been looking at that DVD for two years. I'm going to learn to throw wet flies one way or another. Get ready for many questions. I won't burden the board, but I will burden you with PMs.
Thanks,
Bruce
