At a Glance: Flies
Flies are artificial baits designed to imitate insects in look, size and color. These baits are used in fly fishing and are extremely lightweight. Flies can have add-ons like feathers, hair, fur or threads. The shape and design of a fly can range from life-like to no resemblance of an insect at all, and there is normally one single hook attached to the body of the fly.
The top brands of flies at FishUSA include Gaines, Lively Legz, Otter's Soft Milking Eggs, and Umpqua.
