Re: Lake Fishing
I am primarily a Lake and Reservoir kinda guy as well. I carry numerous fly boxes & they hold numerous colors of the same type patterns. I am generally fishing out of my pontoon boat, so I have plenty of space for my boxes. Keeping like patterns together, they are easy to locate.
1: Leeches & Buggers
2: Nymphs & Emergers (yes Bass like them too)
3: Zonkers & Buggers
4: Softhackle Streamers
5: Poppers & Sliders
But, when it comes to color, it is really hard to say what is going to work. You must be prepared. So, I like to carry as wide an assortment as I possibly can. Granted there are a few color combo's that have never been wet, but you never know.
