The wind whipped my rain­coat as I made an­other cast into the waves. It was early June on Third Pond of the Gan­der River but it was bit­terly cold. The only thing hot was the fish­ing as brook trout af­ter brook trout came to my cast of two wet flies.

I have al­ways been a fan of small wet flies for brook trout but th­ese days wet flies seem to have fallen out of favour, with most an­glers in­stead choos­ing nymphs and stream­ers. That’s a shame be­cause wet flies are a great method of catch­ing trout.

Like most things re­lated to fly­fish­ing, wet flies orig­i­nated in Bri­tain. Those early an­glers were af­ter brown trout, a species which is very wary and no­to­ri­ously hard to catch. This re­sulted in the de­vel­op­ment of small drab pat­terns with names like Black Gnat, Cow Dung and March Brown. Many of th­ese an­glers fished with more than one fly on their line.

In Eng­land, where the tech­nique orig­i­nated, a mul­ti­ple fly rig is called a cast. Tra­di­tion­ally three flies are used, a fly at the end of the leader, called the point fly, a sec­ond fly, called the dropper fly, tied about 16 inches above the point fly on a short piece of leader and a third fly called the dib far­ther up the line. The dib fly gets its name from the tech­nique known as dib­bling. That’s when an an­gler lifts their rod tip re­sult- ing in the dib fly skat­ing or dib­bling along on the sur­face. This tech­nique im­i­tates a hatch­ing mayfly or cad­dis and can be very ef­fec­tive.

I use two flies most of the time be­cause I find a three-fly cast tan­gles too eas­ily. There are sev­eral ways to rig a dropper fly. The sim­plest is to tie on a piece of leader us­ing a blood knot and leave one of the ends long. Some an­glers tie a piece of leader to the bend of the dropper fly and tie the point fly on that. The trick is to not make the dropper leader too long. I find any­thing over a foot will wrap around the leader and leave you with a tan­gle. The use of mul­ti­ple rigs is not lim­ited to fly fish­ing. Ty­ing a wet fly or streamer above a spinner or bait can be very ef­fec­tive as well.

Wet flies are usu­ally tied on short shank, heavy hooks to en­sure they sink read­ily. Most are sim­ple pat­terns, with bodies of tin­sel or che­nille, a wing and some hackle at the head. Tie a va­ri­ety of pat­terns in sizes rang­ing from 10 to 14 and you will be ready to hit the wa­ter any­where. Good old wet flies. If you are plan- ning on ty­ing up some flies this win­ter I would rec­om­mend you in­clude a few wet flies in a va­ri­ety of sizes. Tight Lines. Tip of the week: Make sure that the use of mul­ti­ple rigs is le­gal where you fish. In Nova Sco­tia you are al­lowed a max­i­mum of three hooks, ex­cept in ar­eas with spe­cial reg­u­la­tions or when fish­ing for At­lantic sal­mon where only one, un­weighted fly is per­mit­ted.
