Awesome work Jeff and a great idea.

Why do some fish like certain flies?

Jeff (trout bum) said...


Thanks for the kind words.

Certain species of fish take certain flies because of 2 reasons. one, the fly looks like the food source they forage on and two, fish will attack certain flies out of aggression. They take the fly as a treat to their territory. Not all fish are the same or have the same diet nor, do they all live in the same environment. Hence, the multitude of different fly patterns.

Good to know. Thanks for the answer. That is much more interesting than fishing with worms.
