    I know what a dry fly is, and nymphs are fished under the surface, but what is a wet fly? Is that a dry fly fished underwater?

    Here’s an article on wet flies, plus a few photos of different patterns. Wet flies have been around a long time, and for awhile almost became forgotten, but it seems to be coming back. I enjoy fishing wets, because I can fish them just like dry flies, except they are under the surface of the water.

    Salmon fishers use wet flies, and salmon flies are some of the most beautiful flies ever tied.

    You can take any dry fly, and change it a little to make it a wet fly, which I think is pretty cool in itself.

    Wet flies are what I use when nothing is rising to dries. They don’t stay as deep as nymphs, but I guess youn can say they can be described as emergers, which are nymphs rising to the surface. When the fish action slows down, it’s time to put on a wet fly. But to really challenge yourself when nothing is going on, stay with the dry fly.
