    4) somthing big and bright, like an orange alaskan king pattern for muddy water
    5)marabou patterns in purple, black, and blaze red

    For this time of year I would say anything with purples, pinks, blues and the right depth of the water column to get them there...Enjoy the drug!!!!!!

    Ask Santa for a fly tying kit and begin to create your own top ten. Short of that, I'd recommend the black egg sucking bugger, steelhead muddler, skunk, polar shrimp, street walker, assorted marabou patterns, rubber leg stonefly, and a couple of dry skater patterns. All of these in a variety of sizes with some heavily weighted. (#8-#2) Good luck!
