hydroflynamics 101

hydroflynamics – def. the art and science of water and flies in motion. This pseudo-science studies the interaction between water and flies, in an attempt to maximize the probability of enticing a fish to intake the fly.

The study of hydroflynamics includes review of abstracts and journal entries of experts from around the globe, as well as observations made while on the water.  Topics including water conditions, climate, weather, and sub-surface structure will be covered.

The art of fly tying will also be covered, with a full review of fly types, tying methods, as well as effective fly management both on the line and while in storage.

Previous experience with casting and presentation are suggested but not required as this course will touch on those topics.

While the materials on this site will continue to be updated and upgraded with the latest from the field, other forms of self guided study are also recommended.  The Scholars page contains a list of suggested material.

The best way to study hydroflynamics is to pick up a fly rod, grab a few flies, and get out fishing.  Observe, study, learn and improve, but most of all enjoy yourself on the water.
