Dry Flies & Emergers

An artificial fly that floats on the water's surface. The combination of stiff hackle, floatant and a light hook prevent the fly from sinking. Dry flies are intended to simulate natural aquatic or land insects that float on the water's surface. While the majority of fish are caught below the surface of the water, there is nothing more exhilarating than seeing a fish explode out of the water as it takes your fly.
