Re: Did I get the wrong size flies????
Trout see nymphs throughout their various stages of growth. Right before an insect emerges they are most active & trout can key in on that particular bug. The rest of the time trout, being opportunistic feeders will taste anything that looks lika a bug if they are in a feeding lie, so sz. 18 is actually a good size choice for searching with nymphs....... My motto is that if nothing is happening go to an adams & I usually fish them in sz. 16-18 . You picked up the selection I carry in my main box (along with about 1000 others in other boxes) so don't sweat it.
