Re: Spend my money please!!
Have you signed up for a tying class @ Jimmys' yet? your boxes will fill alot quicker.
I will give you a list of the flies that I use in the area, this is a basic list mainly for "Springtime" nymphing.
We will get together for a float on the S/F soon and go into a little more detail then.
Glo-bugs, the "Bows" will be in the mood for love soon, the Browns and Cutts will chow on the eggs, I forget the name of the color but it's kind of a watered down yellow.
Prince Nymphs with and w/o beads, #12-16.
Stonefly nymphs, black and brown, #4-8.
Pheasant Tail with and w/o beads, #14-20. or Hares ear's in the same size range.
Something you may want to consider is getting your bugs with a silver or black bead, or even without a bead, I believe the fish see too many brass or gold. throw em a curve ball.
A couple of dries that work well for us in the early season are,
B.W.O. parachute or thorax, # 18-22.
Adams parachute, #16-22.
I could give you a few more but this will give you a good start.
As far as Summer, let's work on that when it get's a little closer.
