Trout Flies

Posted by Timothy on 5/19/2014 to Tips

Here at The Trout Spot we want to ensure that you have everything you need for a successful fishing adventure.  Today we will focus on the different types of flies needed for catching trout, as well as other fish. There are trout flies that match just about any type of insect you will find along a trout stream or river. Using the correct trout flies for the season is critical. The thing to remember here is to match the hatch. Browse through our inventory of trout flies and be sure to find the right fish bait to match the mayflies, grasshoppers or nymphs in your fished river, creek or stream. Types of flies for trout fishing lures are dry flies, wet flies, nymphs, and streamers.

Dry Flies

A dry fly is a fly that is fished on the surface of the water. This type of fly is intended to mimic an insect landing on the surface of the water. The insects dry flies mimic include mayflies, dragonflies, grasshoppers, caddis flies and stone flies. Dry flies are good for beginning fly fishermen to use because strikes are easy to see.

Wet Flies

A wet fly is a fly that is fished below the surface of the water. These flies are tied in various patterns to represent drowned insects, baitfish and other underwater prey. Wet flies are more difficult to fish because the trout fisherman must feel the trout bite the lower rather than watch rainbow trout strike at the surface.


A nymph is an immature form of an insect that live in the water similar to a larva. Nymphs in terms of trout flies are types of wet flies which float below the surface of the water.


This type of trout fly is designed to mimic a minnow or a leach. Streamers are obviously another form of wet flies because they float below the surface of the water.

We also have additional flies for different species of fish –you name it. At the Trout Spot, we have any fly or fly assortment you may need for fishing in our extensive inventory.  If you have any questions or inquiries, please contact us or call at:  800-822-7129 and we will do our best to accommodate your fly fishing needs.
