Default Re: Oklahoma-OntheFlyGal-New to Fly Fishing

That advice to hit the local flyshop was stellar. Google something like "top ten flies"

Always a good move: some flies flat out work all over the place and across multiple species. They look like critters that show up in most streams and lakes. for instance:

Hare's ear nymphs, pheasant tail nymphs, prince nymphs--trout and bluegills love 'em.

Wooly buggers
Brown: good for crayfish imitation
black: great to suggest a leech or hellgrammites
olive: suggests a damsel fly nymph
white--suggests minnows
wooly worms--as above but without a tail. They can look like bugs or baitfish.


Dry flies
Caddis
Adams--your basic mayfly.
Grasshoppers--bigger ones are good for bass
Ant patterns

San Juan worms are another that show up everywhere


For all of the exotic flies out there, a box full of these and you can rule the world.

And last but not least: WELCOME ABOARD!
