Fly-Fishing Techniques
Wet Fly Swung, Near Surface or Deep

Wet Fly, Swung Near Surface

Cast your wet fly across the river and slightly downstream, then let the current "swing" the fly until hanging directly downstream. Take a couple of steps downstream between each swing, thereby covering all of the water where fish could be

Wet Fly, Swung Deep

Using the same "swinging" technique described above, add heavier flies and/or sinking lines to get your fly as deep as is necessary to find fish.
