Wet flies are simple to cast and catch, and they assist you with covering a large amount of water and are versatile fly for fly fishing.
In its most basic form, a wet fly is a fly designed to resemble a bait fish in the water column while also imitating a variety of insects and emerging insects. Most wet flies are sparsely tied with a sparse amount of hackle and have thin bodies, making them ideal for casting.
Traditionally, wet flies have quill wings, their bodies are coated with herl or floss, and their hackle is usually long and flowing back over the creature's body. Some patterns also feature prominent tails or tags, which are particularly noticeable.
