Default wich one?

This isnt for advice, I am just curious what do you think is more important, the fly you choose or the presintation?
I belive the later is way more important then the fly, even the wrong fly will catch a few fish when a bad cast or bad drift will only catch that trout thats blind in one eye and been smoking weed all weekend LOL

Hi arfishinbear
Most of the time I would agree with you about presentation being more important if your using a fly of the same general size as what they are feeding on. I don't think color if as important as size. Presentation would include being unseen by the fish & limiting flash, movement & loud noises, not lining the fish or slamming down the fly on top of it. Also giving the fly a drag free drift in the window... IMHO........ And them there are the fish you catch on a streamer in the middle of spinner fall right after you just fell in & the other guys you were with were laughing & stomping around....Go Figure

LOL Just use a 3xl long streamer hook and white floss and put a nice taper to each end of the body.
That'll fool them duds

White floss built up in the center, some work with an Orange Sharpie marker, and a coat of epoxy over the top. I think we're onto something here buddy! lol
