Re: what fly for shad????
I've found b!tch creek nymphs work well for them, both weighted and unweighted. An unweighted example short-stripped right through the middle of them should produce some hits. I weave the bellies in orange, yellow, or chartreuse. Where on the Ohio are you fishing?
The man who busies himself proclaiming something can't be done is frequently interrupted by the man doing it.
