Default Re: Need help: Strategy session for very weedy local pond/lake

To get a sub surface fly to ride hook up, cone heads aren't what you need. You need some type of lead eyes. If you want a slow sink, try using ceiling fan chain as eyes instead. Crays are good, senko's also. You mentioned minnows. Try to see what species they are and tie a pattern close to their color. This time of year, shallow water is where you want to be and I agree about fishing slow. Finally, if you do prefer coneheads, incorporate a weedguard on the fly.
