In their purest form, fishing flies are supposed to fool fish into believing that they are eating something that they normally feed on. Most avid fly tyers put a lot of study into what game fish eat in their natural environment so that they can replicate those organisms with tying materials to exacting detail. One would suppose that the tyer who can construct the most believable counterfeit has advantages in fooling his/her prey. It's called "matching the hatch.""Attractors" are fly patterns...
