Re: Rapidan in June
I'll be up there this weekend also! My best piece of advice is to hike away from the car. The farther up the stream you hike, the better the fishing. Presentation matters a lot more than pattern. Something with a beadhead ticking the bottom is usually the best.
If you want dries, anything that rides high, like a royal coachman or EHC will do well. Size 18-14 is probably best, imho.
