16-18...Make sure you have an array of ants in black as well. Size 14 whitefly & PMD and small 16-14 elk hair caddis.

under the water:
size 10 wollies, BWO, golden stone flies, caddis, prince nymph, all white marabou streamer with silver body - 10....

I caught one of the largest rainbows I've caught thus far in that river a few years ago in the big pool under the bridge outside of town. Took a number 18 sulfur parachute on about 25' of line. During the fight my reel handle fell off into the water and I basically had to "reel" the fish in with the rim on the reel... After it was all said in done, the fish ended up being upwards of 22" (not sure of the weight but it felt/looked very hefty).

I've been looking for a good golden stone pattern; know of any?

Thanks again!
