Hi to all,

I have to say a Stimulator. Have caught more big fish on a Stimulator than any other dry fly. Usually has a nymph or emerger as a dropper.

I would also go with a Yellow Stimulator, catches lot's of fysh, and with good hackle it floats like a cork.

I'm a fly fishing guide in Jackson Hole. My guiding is here in Jackson on the Snake, as well as down south on the New Fork and Green Rivers. When we have enough guides with the same day off we like to venture out of the area. Usually over to the South Fork.

How about yourself?

My absolute favorite dry fly is always the one I have on when a fish eats it.

Favorite? ...or my most reliable .... not necessarily the same thing, but once the air temp hits about 50 to 55 degrees, ants start crawling around. And, they inevitably start falling in the water. I've fished foam ants from April (here in PA) through November. Fish are used to seeing them all the time and they really like them. When I take someone out fishing for the first time, and if the conditions are acceptable, I'll almost always start them on an indicator ant or beetle. They learn how do drift a dry and they can use the same principal with a strike indicator if we end up fishing nymphs. I've also tied up a cool,: sparsely hackled wet ant, this winter, that I can't WAIT to try this spring.

It's supposed to get decent out today so I'm finally going fishing. Bye!
