Dry flyI am new to fly fishing and was told to start off with some orrignal Wolly Buggers and some beadheads, but I have noticed there are different sizes classified in a number system what sizes would be best for trout/bass?
what makes these flies hard to cast? and why is the beadhead so difficult?#8 original bugger is the standard/most popular size,available everywhere,easy to cast,and deadly on trout.Beadheads can be a bit trickier to cast for a rookie but nothing to be intimidated over,however you're more likely to hook yourself,or even worse,break your rod tip with a 90mph beadhead.
Flies weighted with lead wraps,beads,cones,etc. simply require a slightly modified casting trchnique.You generally need to slow down your fore and back casts and open up your loops to prevent leader fouling,hooking yourself,smashing rod tip,etc.what makes these flies hard to cast? and why is the beadhead so difficult?
