Default Re: Midwest Fly Patterns Question (please dont be too upset)

I'll throw in my $.02 on this topic. When I'm fishing the streams in the northwoods, the flies I will NEVER leave home without are:

Nymphs:
  1. Pheasant Tail
  2. Copper John (red & copper)
  3. Pink Squirrel
  4. Bead Head Hares Ear
  5. Brassie

Dries:
  1. Adams (sz 16)
  2. Elk Hair Caddis (sz 14 & 16 in both tan and gray)
  3. Blue Wing Olive
  4. Hoppers (usually tan or green bellies)
  5. Beetles & Ants (Do not overlook this. Some spring and summer months I will fish these, and only these all day long)

Streamers:
  1. Black Wolly Bugger (Sz 8, I like them flashy)
  2. Olive Wolly Bugger (Same as above)
  3. Crawdads


If you want to pm me the streams you tend to fish the most, I can probably help narrow down the flies a bit more for you.
