Default Wyoming Fishing

I got a chance yesterday to head down to one of my favorite fishing spots here in Wyoming, when I got there I couldn't believe the amount of Yellow Sallies and Caddis flies in the air and brush. They were pretty hard to miss as they covered the car as soon as I stopped at my fishing hole (actually this is Clint's favorite hole, but he was kind enough to show it to me, thanks again Clint!!!!). I rigged up with a dry/dropper setup and proceded to work the water, most of the hits were on my drowned tan caddis pattern, but later on I remembered that Frank had told me that a green Stimi works on this river and had some success on top (thanks for that tip Frank!!!!). There wasn't anything really happening as far as insect activity on the water, but whenever I sat down to tie on a fly the Yellow Sallies and Caddis flies were crawling all over me. Yellow Sallies were probably 10 to 1 to the Caddis patterns. I need to find a good Yellow Sallie pattern, if anyone has a good Yellow Sallie pattern please let me know.
Here are a few photos of the fish that were landed:

Larry those are some nice fish wish i could be there. I tied a Yellow Sally pattern and my dad and some of his friends used out in Wyoming a few years ago only thing they could get the fish to hit on top then.I used if i remember right some med.yellow beaver dubbing with palmered yellow hackle trimmed on top and yellow deer hair for the wing tied in fairly flat. Been awhile since i tied it .
