Default Black Gnats

Anyone ever use black gnats(dry) or Prince Nymphs for river trout? Next week I'm going to start trying different flies I have in my flyboxes that I haven't used or used in a long time just to experiment to see what they might take. I caught my first fish on a beetle recently and have taken some on #18 and #20 midges (previous posts) which I had never used before so I just want to have some fun with different flies. I'm like most people, I stick with my go-to flies but I want to break out of the box next week.

Bead-head prince is one of my best producers in the waters around me, I tie a lot of them through the year

I used to use a Black Gnat dry a lot in Washington, but I haven't tried one in a long time ---- I am not sure why not. That really dates me when I start talking about the old days along time ago!
