    Spoonflies like these are very reliable-

    Chartreuse and White Clousers are trustworthy producers.

    I usually throw something more like these-

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    i got all three of those ill see what i can produce. sometimes the bottom flies are hard for me to throw once they get wet though. i tie spoons with the creative feathers fly shop stencils.

    There's really no need to fish heavy flies, as you'll usually be targeting tailing fish in less than 2' of water. Sizes 2-6 are plenty big, and craft fur is great because it doesn't get absorb water and get heavy.
