Re: Name Your Trout Top Ten Nymph & Dry Flies
Ill just kinda make a hodgepodge of what I like to use.
Numba 1: BUZZBALL. This fly is my go to fly, its killer. You wont believe how good it is until you try it.
#2: parachute Adams. Of course
#3: purple haze. A purple parachute Adams pretty much. Pretty awesome fly.
#5: tie. zebra midge: killer winter pattern and just a good general dropped off the weight nymph
#5: tie. Griffiths gnat: does a lot of different hatches if you don't have anything else. Saved the day during a trico hatch this year when I lost my tricks on light tippet.
#6: scud: have caught a lot of big fish on stillwaters with it.
#7: elk hair caddis. If nothing is really happening might as well toss that out there.
#8: Czech nymph: my go to weight fly all year. I'be had good success with it this last year.
#9: little green machine: a good dropped off the weight fly she nymphing.
#10: beetles, ants, terrestrial patterns. They work but ive only had marginal success. I kinda just put them on my top ten because ive caught large fish on them.
"I have a river runs through it on blue ray, so yeah, I guess you could say I know a thing or two about fly fishing."
