Flies for fishing
Spread the love

The name “artificial fly” is a collective term for a whole variety of types of artificial lures associated of various materials on a fishing hook. There are flies that stick to the surface of the water (throw using a floating fly and a thin cord of the leash), and flies, floating or pulled up under water.

At last you can catch and floating and sinking nahlystovymi cord, and floating line with sinking tip. Accordingly, the artificial flies are divided into floating (dry) flies, sinking (wet) flies, nymph (or larvae), “Bakaly” (flies made of wool), streamers (this can be attributed to canonbie flies, used in sea fishing) and salmon flies (catch them as streamers, but to produce them in accordance with the classic rules are much more complicated). So the angler has a choice of many different artificial flies. And if even experienced fly fishermen talking about the difficulties that novice it will certainly lead to confusion.

But at the same time nothing overly complicated here, because the choice of the type of flies floating, sinking, nymph or streamer in the first place depends takes the fish food, eat flies and ground insects like grasshoppers etc. from the water surface or not. If Yes, then, certainly, you should without doubt take a floating fly. But it’s worth a try to apply it in the case when there is a possibility to throw to the visible eye fish (here give the advantage of polarized glasses) or when on the coast there are bushes or trees with which the surface of the water and then Nada insects are food for fish.

In such places fishing is possible in the bright sun, if you from the bushes or trees on the water look bad. Often there is a good fish. If the attempt to catch a floating gun fails, you can go to the nymph or the streamer. For fishing on the nymph it is better to use either a floating line with long leash (2,30 – 3,20 meters), or a sinking line with a short leash. Short for faster sinking line drags the nymph at depth. On a long leash nymph care about weighted or not rise up and did not reach the depth where located on a whiplash cord.

In addition, when tightening the nymph a sinking line produces less underwater noise than floating. So, for example, the dam with slow flow you will be able to catch very deep only if the leash is long. Floating the cord when pulling causes excitement on the water surface, which in this case may scare off the fish. Using the sinking of the cord on the nymph can be fished as taking her over, and pull against him.

The reaction of the fish to pull slowly or quickly the nymph is that it follows the bait and attacks her from behind And the fish are not afraid of no small length, no relatively large diameter of the leash, which in this case can be n thicker than in catch with a floating cord, and a leash. If nymph gives poor results, you can use a streamer on a sinking cord, when the water level is high and it is cloudy.

Dry flies

Referring now to the “dry” fly. She needs to swim well. This fact should be taken into account. Among the dry flies available for sale, come across such buoyancy which is not particularly large. This is due to the fact that part of the old standard samples of flies descended even those times when used for their manufacture the material was not always water-repellent. Today there are many materials that can be used as a body flies and there are even some that can make the fly floating like wool. polisson etc.

Polisson used for the manufacture of the body “ants” ((“Red Ant”. “Black Ant” (caddisflies from noleelee with wool deer| “Running Caddis”, as well as for all kinds of beetles (“Foam Beetle” mayfly, etc., However the most important elements of a good floating flies are hard brushes from rooster feathers and a light hook. Vodootlivnoj material of the wings also helps to improve the buoyancy of the fly.

Thirty years ago we had the bowl not who used the raised wings of the various segments of the feathers. Howled well-known English variant of the fastening of the wings “winded forward”. That is directed at an angle forward to ringlet the hook. However, he’s not stuck.
The modern form of the wings is the wings from the tips of the feathers pointing up or to the side. Materials for many, and experts are finding new and new. But there are so many floating flies without wings, only one brush. In their manufacture eliminates the need for tying wings, and thus saves time.

However, this is not the only reason that private manufacturers don’t tie wings. I know those who can correctly tie the wings of the segments of the line duck feather and because of that prefers to do flies with the brush. But here already found out. Appeared pre-cooked wings from an artificial material which can only cut and tie.

The older generation of manufacturers flies with wings, slowly going away. Only a few today are interested in such trifles. And why, if a fly without wings is also good.
