Flies

The finest and most artistic branch of fishing is the taking of surface-feeding fish by means of the artificial fly. Fly fishing is not of recent origin. We find that this kind of sport was indulged in by the ancient Romans, but it was in England, hundreds of years later that it was developed to its present stand. It is the favorite method of nearly all trout anglers in this country, and is the kind of fishing also employed for the Atlantic salmon, and largely used for the capture of black bass and other fishes of less importance. As practiced in England it is far advanced over our comparatively crude methods used on this side of the water.

Artificial flies are not merely bright colored feathers tied in various combinations to suit the angler's fancy, as many believe, but each fly, with a few exceptions, is an imitation of some insect found on the streams at one time of the year or other, on which the fish feed, or an imitation of a caterpillar or other favorite food. A few, however, have been designed in imitation of nothing living, and have proved good. Because a fish never saw a live insect of just such colors is no reason why he shouldn't bite at it.
