Default Dry and Wet Flies

Hi Everybody, Im new here. I got a bunch of flies from a good friend. Im having a bit of trouble determining which flies are dry and which ones are wet? Just a few tips on how to figure out this would be great. Thanks everyone

Default Re: Dry and Wet Flies

If a fly bounces easily in a cupped palm with no more than a tickling touch on your hand, its a dry. If not, its a nymph, wet, streamer, or maybe a terrestrial (also a dry, but diff't).

Dries are built to float, the others are built to sink.

Hi PAFlyMan,

Go to one of the sites that sells flies and they will be listed by the style of fly. Spend some time studying the different fly styles and you will be a pro in no time.
