    Default What were your top 10 trout flies that worked in 2010

    Think back to last years fishing trips. What flies in your fly box caught fish. Can you produce a list of your top 10 flies. The hook size and where you used them.

    This exercise will help other fly fishermen and Ladies visiting different locations. It is always hard to know what to pack.

    I did most of my fishing on the South Platte in one place or another last year.
    The top three flies that caught the most fish were of my own design, which were merely tweaks to old patterns.

    1. E.T. a tan midge with clear bead head ribbed with red wire. sizes 20-22
    2. Chartreuse caddis larva made with micro tubing, peacock herl, and black bead head.
    3. Jumping Black Flash. A new thing I've only fished since September, but kicks trout butt. sizes 20-24
    4. Orange bead head caddis pupa. size 18
    5. My BWO dry fly made with wings cut from computer screen protective foam size20
    6. Zebra midge in black. size 20-24
    7. Black cone head wooley bugger size 6-10
    8. Grey and black JuJu beatis size 18-22 a Charlie Craven pattern
    9. parachute adams size 20-24
    10. RSII gray size 20-22

    I get a lot of samples from fly company reps. Here are the five sample flies that I did well with during 2010.

    1. Jimmy Legs Stonefly
    2. Kevin Price's Pacifier
    3. Sloan's Mighty May
    4. Taylor's Fat Albert
    5. Grillos' Sideshow Bob

    Here are some patterns that I used regularly with success.

    6. Hale Bop Leech
    7. Woolly Bugger
    8. Royal Wulff
    9. Gold Ribbed Hare's Ear Nymph
    10. Anderson's Bird of Prey

    Honorable Mentions
    11. Mercer's Micro May
    12. Wier's Whopper
    13. Hogan's Hangin' Stimulator
    14. Royal Trude
    15. Sheep Creek Special

    MP

    Edit: Kind of kicking myself because I did mention the fly that caught me the most trout for 2010. It is a simple Partridge and Olive (or tan, orange, peacock, black) soft hackle wet fly.
