Fly for Fishing

In todays world with all the artificial materials that are use, I got thinking, big mistake. I looked up the word fly in The American Heritage Dictionary, based on the second college edition July 1989, the answer is: A fishing lure simulating a fly. I guess this means we are not fly fishing, because we are imitating baitfish not flies. A strong indication of this is that you cannot fish in some states, if your fly is weighted, you are breaking the law. I guess I don't have much to do these days except to wait until the temp gets up to about 40 then maybe I can start fishing again with my new lures. Have a good weekend.
