Artificial flies come in all different colors, sizes, weights, etc. They are made from feathers, fur, hair, and other natural and synthetic materials. They are attached to a hook by a thread. Years ago natural materials tied the flies but today synthetic material is more commonly used. A fly patch accessory attaches to the fly fishing lanyard to hold all the flies you need. The colors, patterns and sizes of flies are determined by the aquatic insects, and other baitfish, prey that match with the local terrain. Flies are tied to present an attractive target for the fish.
