It's no surprise slower or still water may need a close match the hatch - the fly size can tend larger in size and without more than one species. Humorously, if if I can see these flies clearly I can only imagine how well fish see them...

One stream is magnificent with a variety of deep still water with overhanging banks to nicely flowing runs. It has all the challenges, even though the fish are non-native. They are natural in this environment with a good mix of brown and rainbow trout, the fishing can get fairly selective.
