    heading there in a couple weeks so far I've got ESLs, Lip Spreading Woolies, GBSs, Other random skunk style flies, and a few intruders, where I'm stuck is skaters, i was thinking some foam bombers and other assorted stuff we use up here for bows... Should I be going big? Small? Medium?

    90% of my steelheading has involved nymphing little teeny streams sooo... I'm kinda lost

    purple bombers are always great on the skeena. if I was you i'd tie alot of untruders in yellow/pink/red. thats always a great color. skykomish sunrises would be good too in large sizes.
