Most of my fishing is for panfish with a 2 or 3wt rod.
My go-to patterns are:
elk hair caddis
a bead chain eyed maribou minnow ( http://ultralightflyfishing.com/foru...hp?f=94&t=6643
Used the minnow to catch a 'gill yesterday in a very cold pond.
See the thread in this forum -
First 'gill of the year
