Fisher,

It depends on where you fish and the attitude of the fish. Here in AK. you can catch anything from king salmon to char on it. In areas where the fish are not wild or curious you may not have as good of results.

Think about like this, wherever people are catching fish on a CP Swing spinning lure the Micky Finn should have a fair chance. I figure if they'll hit a spinner they will hit anything.

The MF is a great streamer, I have caught everything from trout to bass and even crappie on that fly.

I use it on brookies earlier in the season when the water levels are higher or to explore deeper pools. It still works good under those conditions. I keep some sizes 8 to 12 for the streams I fish.

I always carry a few in the streamer box for Rainbows . It has saved me from the big skunk a few times in high fast water.. I've also caught landlocked salmon on it so it deserves a space in my flybox...
