Welcome to Dry Fly Innovations!
Where "Dry fly fishing knows no season!" We can make magic happen before your very eyes. How? We design DRY FLIES that you can fish from early spring until the ice is floating in the winter. From high mountain lakes to spring creeks or tail waters, we have a recipe and a strategy that might change your whole perspective of DRY FLY fishing forever! Our mission is "To provide the finest dry flies and superb dry fly fishing techniques to anglers at all levels of expertise."

New "Hatches" at DFI!
Hoagie Spent Midge: Another master design built to fish on slow, critical water where big fish are hard to fool. The tail is slightly submerged, the biot body is bold, and the spent wings create the absolute perfect silhouette. When the chips are down, you can double down on this bug!! Click here to see enlarged sample.
Searching Emerger: This fly is a remarkable new design constructed to fish in all water conditions from still to fast riffle. Its abdomen is built with a single strand of natural turkey quill for that fuzzy look, and the whitetail hair over the eye suspends the fly an inch under the surface. It’s a big, juicy target served under the surface film, and its testing period was phenomenal. (Note: Only put floatant on the hair shuck out over the eye of the hook) Click here
