You have a variety of solutions.  I'd leave it with no
flying underwater, but do away with no flying in the rain.
* Perhaps fly can only be cast on self.
* Or give fly a high mana cost and/or short duration.
* Make it non-cumulative in duration.
* Make it a higher level spell.
* Have it require some obscure or hard to get material
component (e.g., "breath of the west wind").
