There are many methods an individual may utilize to attempt to catch a fish, and fly fishing is just one of them. Yet even within fly fishing there are vastly different disciplines to choose from. One can choose to bounce nymphs, swing a wet, drift a dry, or even “chuck and duck”,
However, to this author’s way of thinking, drifting a dry is the main reason to use a fly rod in the first place.
So if you use (or want to learn about) the flies that float, and the lines, rods, reels, and tactics that allow you to present them in a way that catches fish… Welcome!
