Default Re: Dont you just hate it

If you got a nose and refusal on the copperjohn, then chances are you are close...So at that point, say to yourself, okay nymphs, then either do a screen test (hold a fine-meshed fabric screen in the water flow for about 30 seconds) and check the screen for bugs (they will be eating something that will also get caught in your screen) or start tying on variations of what the fish looked at then refused. My next fly in that situation would be a bead-headed prince nymph or a brassy or a little midge. The fact that it got checked out at least puts you in the right category.
