Dry Fly Natural Drift




The natural drift’s purpose is to provide a drag-free drift of the fly. During hatching and egg-laying activities, mayflies are motionless creatures. They are mimicked well by this method. Drifting along the surface, mayflies are at the mercy of the current. To drift unnaturally is termed drag, and it’s caused by the leader pulling on the fly. Drag pulls the fly across the current in an unnatural motion. Effective presentations are drag free.

The following is a list of methods designed to present a fly in a natural, drag-free manner; they are used to imitate placid insects.
