Dry flies

A dry fly is a fishing fly designed to float and imitate a creature on the surface of the water. Dry fly fishing is an exciting part of the sport as you can actually see the fish take your fly.

Dry fishing flies have been around for many years and can imitate lots of different types of flies from a daddy long legs blown on to the water from the surrounding meadows to an upwing dun such as a medium olive floating down the river.

Sometimes general imitation will be enough however there are many times where it is important to look at the size and colour of flies that the fish are feeding on and then select a closely matching fishing fly from you box.
