An·chor Fly.


An anchor fly is a beaded nymph that is weighted to get to the feeding zone quickly. Anchor flies are commonly used in Euro Nymphing and similar tight-line angling methods.


What does fly fishing mean to us?

If my life is a book—the letters are actions and the words are the stories created from those actions. My time on the water is the space between the words. In this space, I am free…” —Eric Carter-Spurio


One of the things that we think make us different is the time and energy we put into our fly fishing content. For example, our resources for beginners are thorough and in-depth. Moreover, we are adding to and revising this section all the time.

If you have questions or feedback PLEASE let us know by commenting at the bottom of the article.

Sharing knowledge is important to us. We strive to publish and refine educational content, consistently.

Fly tying is fun, productive and in our experience makes one a better angler. If you are just getting started, check out Fly Tying for Beginners.
