Catch with a wet fly

Catch with a wet fly – We choose this method of fishing then, when the fish show no interest in food from the surface of the water at all: when you can suppose, that they turn their attention to food from the waters of the water. You can see this type of taste of fish sometimes even visually – this is evidenced by flashes of scales or shadows in the water (here too, polarizing glasses can be of great help).
Wet flies are best thrown diagonally upstream or gently downstream. After falling into the water, align the sag of the leader and the line, and we must let them move freely in different water depths, so that it makes the most natural impression. If the fly has full freedom of movement, the current of the water will carry her to places, where the fish wait for food to flow naturally.

The technique of fishing with this method may also be different, sometimes a fly can be stopped for a moment in a certain place, possibly even pull it back.

Basic types of fly leaders

A classic wet fly should imitate either a dead, mature insect, be an insect that is just breeding (subimago). (The remaining variants of wet flies are classified in separate groups).

Also in this case, you can fish with two midges. When used, the end is submerged, while the second, when attached to a side leader, it floats on the surface or jumps just above it. This way of fishing allows you to convince yourself, at what water level you can count on success. When limiting to using only the wet-fly method, both flies should be submerged.

Fishing for granted” in this case it is rather impossible, "fishing feeling can help."” and information about the habits of the fish. As a rule, the situation forces us to fish for the selected fishery more systematically, however, always pay attention to places particularly suitable for fish places.

One of the problems, with which we come into contact while fishing with a wet fly, it is difficult to observe the catch of the fish; often the reason for this is opaque water or too fast current. Polarizing glasses are partially helpful, however, we mainly rely on the observation of the line at the point of sinking below the surface. For better orientation, we can line at a distance of approx. 3 Mark m from the leader with a bright color.

Compared to the dry fly method, a wet fly for unclear reasons is considered to be some degradation of fly fishing. There are fanatics, who "do not descend” to this method even at the cost of returning home “o stick”.

This is a conservative attitude, the wet fly method is practically as valuable as dry fly fishing and can be successfully used throughout the season with a clean, as well as slightly turbid water, at rising and falling levels, in warm and cool weather.
