Re: Which fly would you choose
Give me something like a soft-hackle hare's ear in a size 14 or 16 and I'll be content for the day. Need to go deep like a nymph? ..... add a split shot or two. Surface? ......grease it up and fish it like a drowned dry. Need to work the riffles and around snags?.....just work it like a streamer; sometimes I think the trout take it for a little bait fish anyway - especially if it's hackled fairly heavy and fished on the swing! The best way? ......cast it upstream.....dead drift it through the seams and let it rise and swing on the end of the drift! .....Very versatile! And, that's my 2 cents!
