Re: Picking a fly pattern
If I don't get a hint from what's flying or by checking under rocks, I go with an old tried and true: Pheasant Tail or Hare's Ear on the bottom or a small Elk Hair Caddis or Stimulator on top. Sometimes, I just want to loosen up the casting arm in the spring and chuck as much line as I can. Then it's a red bead head black bugger- tossed up, tumbled down, stripped back. My two cents.
