Video Pro Tips: Understanding Different Kinds of Flies


“Getting Started in Fly Fishing” is a great new video series from Brian Flechsig of Mad River Outfitters in Columbus, Ohio. In this episode, Flechsig finally gets to the end of the line, so he can talk about flies. Here, he’s offering the big picture: an overview of the basic kinds of flies and what they do in the water. In later episodes, he’ll break these categories down further. Today’s video is a great complement to the video about hook sizes that we published this morning.
