  Fishing Lures
A fly lure or Fly, or "pattern", in terms of sport fishing and fly fishing, is an artificial lure tied, most commonly, with thread, feathers, and fur, but may also include, lead (for weight), ribbon, tinsel, beads and other assorted materials.
A wet fly is traditionally fished in a down and across swing - the fly line is cast across the stream and the current carries it in a downstream arc until the line is directly downstream of the fisherman - "on the dangle".
Certain fly lures such as streamers may be used with a normal sport fishing rod, but a special and much softer fly fishing rod is required for most fly fishing.

If you want the lure to make a soft landing in the water to minimize the splash when fish are spooky, simply stop the line with your hand when the lure is about a foot over the water and about to land.

To produce a successful fly pattern, a fly-tyer needs to be familiar with a variety of tools and materials, as well as numerous creatures that inhabit a river, stream, or lake.
The term nymph is a type of wet fly that imitates the immature form of an aquatic insect such as the mayfly, damselfly, and dragonfly.
Other fly patterns are tied as wet flies in order to represent different subsurface aquatic creatures such as leeches, crawfish, freshwater shrimp, baby sunfish, or immature game fish such as trout or bass.

Though he never has fished with a fly rod, my son absolutely loves the look of a well-wound fly and has collected quite a few while attending different fishing shows and gatherings.

 Fly vs Spinning - Fly Tying
With a fly you can let it drift with the current just as if it was a real piece of food drifting down stream.
I think any fly angler with enough experience can do as well as those who just use the conventional tackle if the conditions are favorable.
For example, fishing on a day with 30 mph winds, the fly tackle is at considerable disadvantage, and even light spinning tackle would be difficult.

 Match the Hatch for Shad, by Brian M. Wiprud
Very doubtful [that shad think flies are plankton.] The size of shad prey is generally much smaller than the size of the lures commonly used.
But maybe actually the size of the shad lures are not that much different than other shad prey such as mysids, krill, and sand shrimp that may reach 5-6 mm in length.
Since shad will strike at lures during this time and will feed on insect hatches if they occur it may be that the proper food does not exist for shad on the freshwater spawning areas.

 The Wet Fly
The wet fly is a representation of the underwater stages of many numbers of insects.
The wet fly -unlike the dry fly- may be fished down stream, upstream or crossways and with little or no action imparted by the rod.
However, as a rule the cast should be made diagonally across stream and the fly allowed to drift down stream with the current, only when the line starts to drag should the rod tip be used to bring life to the fly.

 Salt Water Prawn Fly Lure
I usually insert the hook into my fly tying vice and then lightly coat the shank with superglue, from just behind the eye to a point at the start of the bend of the hook opposite the barb.
The head and eyes of the fly are above the bend of the hook, while the tail of the shrimp covers the eye.
Take a pair of the mono eyes which you made earlier and scrape the lower two thirds of their stalks with a sharp blade to roughen and slightly taper the surface furthest away from the ball head.

The run-off from the late wet season has seen the best barra action in the rivers that I’ve witnessed for at least a couple of years with heaps of barra ‘boofing’ bait in many areas, particularly on the last of the run out tide.
We’ve had some great barra action in the Hey, Embley and Pine, with 3 of the lure casters from the doctors group scoring around 35 barra, 8 jacks and plenty of archer fish during a hectic session early last week.
The mangrove jacks have been taking a few lures home with them, with most of the fish measuring from low to high 40’s.

A tip to remember that I have found to be most reliable the past several days is when the water is super clear with bright skies, downsizing your lure or fly will increase your chances of catching.

 New fruit fly synthetic lure holds promise
Dec 6, 2003 12:00 PM An Agricultural Research Service scientist and cooperators are developing a new lure that could increase the capture of Anastrepha fruit flies that attack a variety of citrus and other crops in North and South America.
The lure was developed jointly by researchers at ARS' Kika de la Garza Subtropical Agricultural Research Center in Weslaco, Texas, and at IPM Tech Inc. of Portland, Ore. It has surpassed expectations, both for attractiveness and longevity in the field.
This new synthetic lure may be a promising basis for mass trapping or use at bait stations or kill stations to control Anastrepha species.

Fly-fishing uses tiny yarn and feather lures that resemble actual flies in order to trick fish into thinking that there is a meal at the end of the line.
A fly-fisherman casts the line so that the lure lands delicately on the water just as a fly would.
The path and landing of the line are important, in order to convince the fish that the lure is a real fly.
