Author Topic: What qualiflies as a FLY? (typo intended)
pajeff

After being introduced to FLY fishing last year I remain confused as to what constitutes a genuine FLY for the purpose of FLY fishing. And before I get the obvious, "It has to resemble a real FLY" and get into the grey area, what the fish can be tricked into believing is a fly and still qualifies as a fly fishing fly.

(I don't believe I am trying to outwit a fish, but it is fun to try).

Hi Mr Jeff...in my mind(twisted as it is.. )fly fishing is using the line as the delivery method..as opposed to spin-casting where the bait/lure is the delivery method..some folk even use a spinning rod and bubble to cast a fly...but you'd be hard pressed to fly-cast a Mepps spinner...just my thoughts...

if you would like more indepth info on fly fishing, cast your browser this way

I agree for sure with mojo, a fly is any interpretation of an aquatic, land or flying insect that is intended to be used with a fly rod basically
