Default Noob Question - Identifying Wet Vs. Dry

Is there an easy way to identify a dry fly vs. a wet, especially those of the same pattern? Some are very obvious by name (a Mosquito will probabaly always be a dry) or basic type (a Nymph pattern will never be a dry), but there seems to be a crossover where I get confused.

I was looking at 2 flies side by side in a shop this morning, both a Royal Coachman pattern as example, with the dry being a #12 and the wet being a #10. Except for obvious size differences in the hook, everything else looked identical.

As always, thanks for any help.

Jamie.

EDIT:

I think I found the answer in Larry's and RipTide's posts seen HERE

Thanks guys!!
