Re: Wet Vs. Dry
I very rarely fish dry flys, I fish nymphs and streamers about 50/50, and closer to 20/80 in favor of streamers in wintertime, only when water dictates that i am forced to fish something other than a streamer do i change. I find that when the water temp is colder its harder to get the fish to move, unless they consider it worth there while, so in a montana winter i just throw big stuff. However i have noticed a trend, i catch less fish. I went out fishing sometime in december when it was warmer on the beartrap canyon on the madison river with a buddy, he was using smaller stuff, and he did catch over twice as many fish as me. But i ended up catching the largest couple fish on the day, and i still did well.
