Re: Secret Weapon fly?
The flies are not the secret, where I use them is.................
Dry Fly - Trout (lower 48) #18 or 20 Blue Quill
Wet Fly - Nine Three, G. Ghost, Brook Trout Minnow, etc, etc, Feather Wings
Nymph - Trout Gold Ribbed Hares Ear various sizes
Pike Fishing anywhere - McNally Magnum Tandem various colors
Bass, a lip hooked shiner no weight drifted for Small Mouth
I of course use other flies but these are some go to deals.
For Salmon here, featherwing streamers and Whitlock Sculpins near the salt.
Bunny fur comets in many various colors and sizes when the run is on the mush.
For Steelhead, Rainbow, and Char, Featherwing Streamers in many traditional patterns and a few that I tie for fun. The Nine Three is by far one that has accounted for many many fish.
