What is dry fly fishing?

Dry fly fishing is a popular technique used in fly fishing where an angler imitates adult aquatic insects that float on the water's surface. The objective is to present a dry fly that closely matches the appearance of the hatching insects, enticing the fish to rise and take the fly from the water's surface.

How to start fishing with dry flies?

Selecting the best dry flies to match hatching insects on the water requires careful observation and knowledge of the local aquatic insect life cycles(Entomology). It's essential to understand the different stages of insect development, such as nymphs, emergers, duns and spinners. By observing the insects, water conditions and the behaviour of feeding trout, you can determine which stage of insect the fish are targeting.

When it comes to matching the hatching flies, there are a few factors to consider. First, observe the size of the hatching insects. Insects go through various size ranges, and it's crucial to choose a dry fly that closely matches the size of the naturals. This can be done by carrying a range of dry fly sizes in your fly box.

The next consideration is the colour and silhouette of the hatching insects. Pay attention to the color of the insect's body, wings and any distinct markings. Look for dry flies that mimic these characteristics as closely as possible. Often, you'll find dry flies designed to imitate specific species such as mayflies, sedge flies or midges.

Lastly, consider the behaviour and presentation of the natural insects. Watch how they sit on the water's surface, drift and behave. Some may float high on the water, while others may sit lower or even partially submerged. This will help you choose a dry fly that has the appropriate buoyancy and sits correctly on the water.

Experimentation is key in dry fly fishing. If you're unsure about the specific insect species or the stage of the hatch, it's best to start with a generic pattern that matches the size and colour of the insects you observe. As you gain experience and knowledge, you can fine-tune your selection and carry a more diverse range of dry flies in your arsenal.

Remember, successful dry fly fishing also depends on factors like accurate casting, presentation and reading the water. Being observant, adaptable, and patient will greatly improve your chances of matching the hatching flies and enticing fish to rise and take your dry fly.
