    Howdy-

    Im filling up the "junk box", and am wondering if anyone has had luck with trout eating Pat's Rubberlegs tied in purple? Might be interesting.

    Thanks

    Bob

    I've tried fishing one that's purple with pink legs. No luck so far, but I'm the world's worst nympher.

    Other purple flies seem to work great so it can't hurt to try.

    If you are not catching fish when nymphing. You are either not on the bottom or there aren't any fish where you are fishing at, or your using the wrong color. Or you just suck at fishing.

    I'll admit that you might be worse than I am, but your use of the word success and nymphing in the same post indicates that you're not. :)
