I love me some size 16 black beetle fishing...but it has its limitations. I caught trout on the foam beetle in early november in PA last year, I saw a couple of rises to who knows what, so I threw on a beetle and caught a couple.

Gun to my head though, Nymph. Doesn't even have to be anything special. Most of a trouts diet is 5/8 of an inch long and fuzzy.

I voted for nymph, but if I could only fish one fly all year round, it would be a copper john. I have caught more fish in the river, and lakes with a copper john than any other fly. I have said before, it may be a confidence thing, but copper johns work for me, not always, sometimes the fish are very selective, but, more times than not, if I don't have the exact fly I need a copper john in the right size will catch something.

Streamer here. Muddler in specific. I can fish it high,weighted,swing it or rip it. In the past it has saved the day when the spring streams are colored and churned. Make it a traditional pattern with lots of tinsel and I'll get by for the year. If I have to. Sheese! One fly. Gives me chills just thinking about it.

I would have to go with a good ol wolly bugger. You can catch just about anything you want on them and they produce big fish, for me at least.

Bead head Prince Nymph. I've hooked more fish on this fly than all the other flies I've tossed combined.

If we're not talking about subsistence fishing, then I'd use a stimulator. Probably a size 16 yellow and orange, or one of my purple haze-lators in size 12. I like stims because they are an attractor pattern, they can be fished as a dry or a wet, and I just love the violent strikes, especially from fish over 18 inches. It's like they've got murder in their ectothermic hearts . . . makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside . . . God bless 'em.

Somehow I missed this thread the first time around!
Streamer for me, it brings out the big boys to play! Right now I'm favoring the big articulated streamers.

Davo: I didn't see where you answered Frank's question about favoring the JJ Special in a beadhead version or not, I'd like to also know. I know you throw sink tips, do you also like weighted streamers?
