Default Re: Top Ten Big Horn Flys

I'd recommend talking to the folks at the Bighorn Trout Shop on flies they would recommend depending on the time of year you plan to fish.
Bighorn River Fishing Report, Weather & Waterflows : Bighorn Trout Shop : Fort Smith, Montana

They have a reports page on their website but it hasn't been updated since last Oct. The last report shows this:

Dry Flies
#22 #20 Trico Spinner; #22 CDC Baetis Sparkle Dun; #22 Crippled Johnson; #8 Parachute Hopper (tan)
Streamers
#4,#6 Black Conehead Wooley Bugger; #4,#6 Brown Wooley Bugger; #4 Black Zonker; #4,#6 Bighorn Bugger (Brown & Yellow)
