            Hey! Did you know that there are lots of amazing creepy crawly creatures living in our streams? Our waterways are not just home to native fishes, but to an incredible range of animals called invertebrates - animals without a backbone! Even some of the insects we think of as bein...g inhabitants of the air and bush actually live part of their lives in the water. Freshwater invertebrates are those animals that live in freshwater environments, such as rivers, streams, lakes, ponds, wetlands, hot springs, ditches - sometimes even puddles! And they include creatures such as craneflies, caddisflies and mosquitos. We also have jellyfish, crabs, freshwater limpets, mussels and clams, as well as the hydra - a freshwater relative of the anemone. Many New Zealanders have never seen us, know about us or even know where to look for us. So, come and have a look and see what other cool animals you can find in a stream, river, lake or puddle near you.

            Dozens of new flies in full color from America’s favorite flytier. Doug Swisher cowrote Selective Trout, the bestselling fly-fishing book of all time. Now he’s back with brand new flies. Back in the ’80s, right after Selective Trout was first published, many fly...-tying books came on the market that were pushing the merits of the types of flies Carl Richards and Doug Swisher developed, like the No-Hackle Dun, Hen Spinner, Emerger, and Still-Born. Those were types of flies that had never been written about before. Then, a few years later, in the early 2000s, the emphasis switched drastically to what you would call streamer and attractor patterns. Flies for Selective Trout covers a few of the “No Hackle Types” and many of Doug’s new attractor flies, like glow in the dark, ultraviolet, brush flies, advanced pupas, and our action-dubbing versions—with wiggly legs right in the dubbing! New flies include: No Hackle PMD Duckquill Emerger Mono Caddis Pupa Velcro Green & Mean And much more! The Swishers also include tips on how to fish the new flies, as well as where they were developed. Pick up a copy of Flies for Selective Trout to learn about all of the new materials and tying techniques that make these new flies so exciting!
