What is a Wet Fly
In fly fishing, wet fly is a general term used to describe a type of artificial fly (similar to a nymph) representative of sub-aquatic trout food. Where nymphs are most commonly designed, tied, and fished to closely and realistically imitate insects in their pre-adult or larval stage, wet flies are most commonly designed to be more impressionistic than precise imitations of specific types of food.

detdesc::What a wet fly is: In fly fishing, wet fly is a general term used to describe a type of artificial fly (similar to a nymph) representative of sub-aquatic trout food. Where nymphs are most commonly designed, tied, and fished to closely and realistically imitate insects in their pre-adult or larval stage, wet flies are most commonly designed to be more impressionistic than precise imitations of specific types of food.

That in mind, typical wet flies can imitate drowned insects, small baitfish, sculpins, crustaceans, worms, squid, and other forms of sub-aquatic morsels appealing to larger, hungry, and aggressive fish.

Wet flies are commonly fished exclusively in freshwater except for those coastal areas with brackish channels, deltas, estuaries, back bays, and other saltwater-freshwater mixes -- wet flies can be effective in these water types as well.

Because wet flies are designed to ride beneath the water's surface, these fly patterns often incorporate some sort of weight. The added sinking weight of these flies is achieved with lead or copper wire, bead heads, and lots of water-absorbant fly tying materials. The larger, heavier-gague wire hooks also help to keep these flies in the sub-surface after a cast.

Wet fly fishing materials…
The use of long, wispy, or otherwise shaggy looking fly tying materials in wet flies is a necessary design element to their ultimate effectiveness. The characteristic shaggier or bulkier dubbing fibers and longer hackle collars common to many wet flies help them push water with lots of animated movement. Some classic wet fly patterns are: Leadwing Coachman, the Wooly Worm, the Grizzly King, and the Blue Bottle. These classic wet flies are easily recognized by their married wings and long webby hackles and tails. Wet flies can be brightly colored creations designed to grab a predator's attention or provoke aggressive action, or they can be fashioned from more drab, subdued, or realistic looking materials.

Wet fly fishing techniques…
Fly fishing techniques commonly employed when fishing with wet flies are often similar to those used when fishing with a nymph. Dead drifting and high sticking are common and fishing a wet fly on the swing is another classic presentation style. Wet flies can also be stripped like freshwater or saltwater streamers.

Wet flies have enjoyed a recent resurgence in popularity over the last few decades and fly anglers and fly tyers across the globe continue to experiment with these important fly patterns on a range of target game fish species in all types of fly water.

detdesc::Hook File



How many fish have I lost to dull hooks? Answer: More than you and I would care to count. Not only that, how many otherwise good flies have I tossed that could have been easily sharpened? I just never seem to have a file when I need one! Now there is no excuse. Hook File sharpens hooks from size 24 to 6 without any problems, and guess what? It doesn't't rust! With a groove on either side, it's easy to use; just pull the hook down one, turn it over and pull it down the other. It also comes with a lanyard and is only 4 inches long. So, it costs twelve bucks, and it'll probably pay for itself the first day you use it. Now, there really isn't any excuse!

Call them what you will, forceps, clamps or hemostats, this handy tool is darn-near a requirement for any fly angler. Why? You can do just about anything with them. You can bend down hook barbs. You can gently remove your fly from a fish's mouth. You can gently remove your fly from your buddy's mouth (or arm or leg). Heck, you can even change a blown fuse in your fishing truck.



We'll keep it super simple, these are the right sized clamps, built strong for a long life of...well, clamping stuff. They are black, so they won't flash in the sun and scare your fish. They also lock in place, so you can attach it to just about any piece of clothing, so they won't bang around while fishing. Finally, we've included an insurance policy in the form of a handy, coiled lanyard. Now, you'll never lose your forceps, clamps, hemostats...or whatever you want to call them.

Tuna


 




 The Bluefin Tuna game is hard. I was
first introduced to the Bluefin Tuna during my commercial fishing years.
We
would set a course for the Gulf Stream in a tiny 70 foot fiberglass long
lining
boat. Believe me, out there a 70 ft. boat is tiny. After traveling
several hundred miles off-shore to the Tuna, Mako Shark and Sword
fishing grounds, we would carefully analyze the eddies, micro currents
and water
temperatures. The captain was the final decision maker and his decision
on where
and when to set the 1,200 hooks was at the root of a successful or
unsuccessful
set. Long line commercial fishing or any commercial fishing is exactly
the same
as any other type of fishing. The only difference is that everything is
exaggerated. Catches are measured in the thousands of pounds. Instead of
a
couple rods, reels, lures or flies there are thousands of hooks. Instead
of going out for the
day, you go out for 15 or 30 days. Four foot seas are common, it’s the
10+ foot
seas that become troublesome. Instead of 10 hours being a long day of
fishing,
the fishing never stops. It is a 24/7 operation and sleep is a rare
commodity.
So, every night we would set the long line. It floated for miles on the
surface
of the Gulf Stream waters with 1,200 individual baited hooks hanging 6
fathoms
below the main line. We would then pick up the line in the morning,
assuming a
freighter did not run over it and get it caught in its prop. The premise
was much like any other form of fishing. The long line was reeled onto a
huge spool of mono
that was attached to the deck of the boat. As each hook was brought to
the boat,
there were only two possible scenarios. The hook either caught a fish or
did not. But, just like any other form of fishing, there were
contingencies to the scenario. What kind of fish was it? We were
targeting only
Bluefin Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna, Mako Shark and Swordfish. So, anything
else was
not wanted. If the captain made a wrong decision and chose to have us
set the
long line in bad water, it was possible to end up with 1,000 or so Blue
Sharks.
That was



not a pretty situation, for the sharks or us. The
sharks would roll
themselves in the mono and tangle the mono to the point of being
unrecognizable.
But, nonetheless we had to get all of our expensive hooks back and
untangle and
splice all the mono. Needless to say, a bad set such as this resulted in
countless hours of work. But, lets assume the captain made a good
decision and
ordered us to set the lines in “good fish” water. The hooks would come
up to the
boat and many would be empty but many would have “good fish.” But,
typically,
the majority of “good fish” would be Yellowfin Tuna or Swordfish and
Mako Shark.
The Bluefin Tuna had a way of staying one step ahead of us. But, when we
did get
into the Bluefin Tuna, we were a happy crew. At $45 per pound, A few
Bluefin Tuna could really make the work worthwhile. Fast forward to
present day. I
no longer commercial fish. I don't like to eat fish. I don't keep any
fish. I no longer fish with
conventional gear. I only fly fish. And, to be honest, if not for fly
fishing I don't think I would fish at all. With that said, my recent
Bluefin Tuna fly
fishing trip was amazing. It was amazing because I was able to exercise
all of
the skills I learned from the days of long lining in the Gulf Stream. It
was
amazing because the factors that determined our success with the fly
rods were
identical to the factors that determined success with the long line. We
had a
great captain and skipper, new quality gear, a combined wealth of
knowledge and
experienced and skilled fishermen. Our wise and knowledgeable Captain,
Mike
Warecke (860.304-9131) understood the water and the fish. Without
Captain Mike
and his good decisions, I truly do not think our trip would have been a
success.
We had, Pete, a knowledgeable skipper and boat man. Pete is an editor of
Boating Magazine and
his knowledge of boating was obvious. We also had
Tom
Rosenbauer, the fly fishing guru at the
Orvis Company and author of
“The Orvis Fly-Fishing Guide.” Tom’s gear was perfect for this trip. Tom
outfitted our crew with 8, 10 and 12 weight Zero Gravity Fly Rods and Mach and
Vortex fly reels. Tom also rigged the rods and reels with color coded
backing, tested knots, Wonderline fly line (floating, intermediate and depth
charge), Mirage leaders, tippet and flies. Above all of this, a huge thanks goes
out to the fishing Gods. We were blessed with good weather, warm air and water
temperatures, baitfish, Bonito, Skip Jack Tuna and Bluefin Tuna. It is truly
magical when everything and everyone comes together. Thank you Mike, Tom and Pete for making
this one of the best fly fishing trips of my life.
