    Default Anyone else do this?

    when my dry fly gets too wet to stay above surface, i will just use it as a wet fly and slowly pull it in. The fish seem to like it more too.

    My technique is nothing to write home about, but I catch more trout on waterlogged dry flies than on floating ones.

    Default It's like baseball.....

    Wet or dry, I change flies when they quit attracting fish.... if a fly has been chewed up and is coming apart but still getting hits, it stays in the game. No interest, it goes to the "bench".

    a partially submerged fly is usually a struggling fly, neither in (diving) nor out (drying wings and flying) of the water, and therefore a much more probable catch for the fish; he doesn't take as big of a risk in expelling energy on a fly that is ready to take to the wing; a brand new dry that sinks at bit toward the bend of the hook will outfish many flies that rest on the film instead of in it;

    pretty cool how you can learn some things just by going out and doing it, huh?
