If you haven't yet experienced the enjoyment of dry fly fishing, fall can be a good time to get out and try it. While the insect hatches that generally take place during fall may not compare to the more intense hatches of the spring or early summer months, dry flies continue to bring fish to the surface to feed. As an added bonus, most streams are much less crowded during this time of year.
Once you watch a trout take your fly on the surface for the very first time, you'll understand why fly anglers often favor dry fly techniques. You can learn how to fish dry flies with a bit of practice and a few simple tips.
Now that you have a few tips to apply when dry fly fishing, find a few local streams and grab your fly box. The trout are waiting! If you don’t have yet your fishing license, you can get it online.
