Re: RS2 Sizing/ how to fish
Do not give up on the 16s they will work well during a BWO hatch (tied in olive) on the Arkansas or even on Grey Reef (tied in black and grey) early as Mayflies and BWOs start coming off.
Do not get me wrong I use the above mentioned sizes on our tail waters as well, the RS2 is a great all around pattern.
I love fishing them weighted below a size smaller or larger during a major hatch to cover my bases. During a hatch use a jerky upward motion during the drift to simulate the rising emerger. Amazing takes during a hatch.
I will also use the RS2 as a searching pattern as the flash will sometimes create a positive response for no reason at all.
