Default Dry flies are more exciting and challenging

The few times I've used dry flies have been more exciting than when I've used wet flies. The reason is if you pay attention, you can see the trout take the fly either by gently sucking it in or aggressively attacking it. The challenge comes in proper presentation.

I've always enjoyed dry flies more because I'm able to see the bites more easily; I know some say that they've had more success with wet flies, but I'm content with what I catch with the dry ones.

Yes, for me, fun is important part of fishing. I prefer to get more excitement rather than to get more fish. So I mostly use dry flies except I am starving and need the fish ASAP.

I haven't tried dry flies yet. Waiting for the fish to bite the bait from underneath is more exciting for me. It has the element of surprise.

I like both dry and wet flies for both reasons. I do enjoy seeing the fish come up and bite the bait though (when it's on top of the water). It's just more fun to watch.

What's really exciting is when the fish jump out of the water to attack the fly. Then you set the hook and get ready for a huge fight.
