Dry Fly Fishing for Beginners

So what is dry fly fishing?

Dry fly fishing is one of the most exciting styles of fly fishing because you actually see the trout come up out of its hiding place to eat your fly. It can be one of the most exciting things to see when fishing—and what typically gets newcomers coming back again and again. The reason it is called dry fly fishing is that your fly, in essence, stays “dry” as it floats on the surface.

In this lesson, we will go over the basics of dry fly fishing and how you can utilize the techniques to land MONSTER TROUT.
