Perhaps at the start back in the days of tree limbs, string and dead bugs a “fly” was really a fly. But with the passage of time and growth in technology, the “fly” at the tip of the leader is all too frequently something else. Try to recall to mind it this kind: the term “fly” generically describes the synthetic or imitation bait tied to the tip of the fly fisher’s leader. Down South, one can hear the term “bug” if the fly fisher is after black bass; in the northwest, one could hear “streamer,” if the target is steelhead; still other fishers may check with their imitation using the term “diver” or “eelwørm. ” All are technically accurate.
