I just started fly fishing and it is really hard learn everything because there is so much variety. I was wondering what flies ohio guys use when swinging flies through currents. Also I have seem some flies that look like they had hooks the were attached to a shank by line? What are these? And any information is appreciated more than I can explain. Being a Newbie isn't that fun!

You can flyfish using two main methods.
Letting egg imitations and nymphs "hover" downstream by ensuring there is no drag on your line. Keep it always near bottom.
You can scribe an arc across and downstream about 2/3rds of the way down towards bottom using one fly.............the wolley bugger.
The flies with the hook trailing are another way to try and get short biters connected. like the bass guys who use tralier hooks on a spinnerbait.
Its also nice becasue if the hook gets wrecked, you can loop another on without throwing your fly in the garbage.
A personal opinion here, but I have used short shanked hooks with materials dragging WWWWaayyyyy behing the point, and if the fish wants it.....really wants it............they usually grab the thing head first or at least take a good solid sideways swipe.
Catching them on flies takes some practice, but its really fun. and you don't lose as many fish.
