Since we are here writing principally for the beginner it does not seem advisable to discuss at any length the subject of dry flies; for dry-fly fishing is eminently a method which only the Flies, advanced student in the school of fly-casting should attempt. Also dry-fly fishing is properly at home only in England, where it is extensively practiced on clear, slow-moving streams, for highly educated brown trout, the fish we call also the German trout. Rather recently it has been taken up to some extent by a few American anglers on streams more or less suited to this style of fishing; but, by and large, dry-fly fishing is not adapted to American conditions. However, the angler, merely as a matter of angling knowledge, should make himself acquainted with the methods followed by the dry-fly fishermen, and should know something about the subject of dry flies.
