Default Re: Multipurpose patterns/sizes for NOT a trout fisherman

"Matching the hatch" is only important about 10% of the time.
The rest of the time it's a good presentation that catches fish.
Hare's ear, PTs, prince nymphs..... Adams, elk hair caddis...... woolybuggers.. a couple of soft hackles, maybe......
After that everybody has their favorites, but the most important thing is the natural presentation.
