Upstream wet fly fishing creates a challenge for most fly anglers, but it certainly has its benefits. Here’s what you need to know to try your hand at wet fly fishing upstream.
If you are fishing a fly below the water surface, you are wet fly fishing. Wet fly fishing is more about how you fish the fly rather than the fly itself. Most of the time, wet fly anglers are more successful because fish feed under the film and feast on smaller fish, terrestrials, aquatic bugs, shrimp, crayfish and tadpoles.
