    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.

    The wet ones usually are dripping....
    It's not the heat, it's the stupidity.
    What manner of jackassery will I be subjected to today?

    fill up your sink and toss em in lol
    you should never get mad over losing a fish on a fly rod.
    you should be happy enough just knowing that you
    tricked that fish into hitting an artificial fly.
