What is a Fly?

A fly is an artificial lure that is made typically out of fur, feathers, and perhaps synthetic materials. These materials are tied to a hook to imitate the size, shape, and color of the food form that the fish is feeding upon. Some are also tied in an attempt to trigger a predatory response from the fish. Originally (and still in the UK) the description of fly was only used to describe an imitation of an insect. In the US and many other parts of the world, that definition has been expanded to generally describe any imitation fished with a fly rod including imitations of other fish. In the UK, flies that are tied to imitate fish as opposed to insects are known as lures.
