Hi to all,

The Royal Wulff is at the top of my list. Although I have caught more big Rainbows on a yellow/green Stimulator. If I had to pick one it would be the Stimulator.

Royal Wulff is my go to non hatch fly on the waters I fish out West. I agree with Frank...the Stimulator is great also. As for buggers....the JJ's Special from High Country Flies in Jackson WY... it's even a great Bass fly.

Good old Elk Hair Caddis for me. Here in Idaho I have had good bites on this when there is no topwater bug activity to be seen. I am sure it has to do with the fact that Caddis hatches are less concentrated than some other bugs and can come off any time. That and they tend to stick around in the grasses near the waters edge for a while. Anyway, that is what I like to use.

I loves me some small stimmies. Size 18 caddis green Stimulator is my favorite. Best high-floating buggy small caddis pattern out there.

Royal Wulff tied parachute-style will often out-perform even specific hatch-matched flies on the small mountain streams that I love to fish. I never leave home without a good selection of these. I also throw in some Copper John Barrs, Prince nymphs, a few hoppers in the summer and I am set. In the Fall and winter you need some Wooly Buggers. If you can't catch fish with these 5 flies, you have a problem.

Another vote for the Wluff Royal Coachman.

When (1) I'm out west, (2) determined to fish a dry fly, and (3) completely baffled, I'll tie on a Royal Wulff. Amazingly, this often works. Perhaps it's because I stop trying to figure everything out and just enjoy the simple rythm of fishing.
