Dry flies are also easier to make than other flies if you’re interested in making your very own flies for fly fishing.

Saltwater flies can also be used in freshwater situations, so don’t fret if your favorite saltwater fly also becomes your favorite freshwater fly!

Like dry flies, wets and nymphs come in a variety of sizes and styles that allow anglers to fish a wide-variety of presentations in pursuit of their favorite game fish. Anglers can also make their wets and nymphs if they’re interested in adding a creative touch to their fishing arsenal.
