Re: Fast Rivers and "Go To" flies and technique
Ditto's on figuring it out...
The last two years I have started using doubles and I believe situations like you write are reduced.. Bad day's are still there...
One day two of us fished 2 hours nothing on a 400CFM day on the Merimec here in Mo. My partner finally added additional weight and boom he caught. I did the same instead of 1 bb I put 2 on. What I thought was bottom I guess wasn't close
The two fly patter that is working more now than I care to admit is a heavy beadhead GloBall with Flashback Hairs ear..
Also If I go streamers, like a WoollyBugger, I will put a flashy attractor about 10" behind it. This combo works well. The best for me currently is a Green Beadhead WollyBugger and a chartrues #12 Crackleback.. This one is deadly.. Another friend ties a custom built chartrues wolly with a crackle
