    CLO....I'm hardly new to fly fishing. If you can pull up stuff from piscatorial pursuits then you can also pull up stuff from this very website. Which I've been a member of since 2007.....I stopped fly fishing in 2010. Getting back into it now.

    nice try buddy

    For summer runs I would carry at least 3 differant sizes of any pattern. Buy them in size 2-6. Tied both full dress and low water style.
    Keep Swinging!!!!!!

    Then you must be familiar with the search function of this website in the upper right corner.

    Pat Stones in sizes 6-10, orange cone head nymph patterns in 6-10, nymphs in 6-12 tied with blue, I also use hares ears, prince nymphs, Amato Nymphs, and yes, I will throw glow but patterns as well, but to be honest with you I've certainly found where beads/egg patterns do not work as well as nymphs, more often than not to be honest.

    I will also nymph big swing patterns that fish will take dead drifted or swung at the end of an indicator drift. One of my personal keys is to continue to switch up patterns if I know fish are present. I think most of my success comes from making sure I fish where there are actually fish to be caught.

    I do not know what is more sad. The fact that I did not know what that meant or that I actually spent time on google figuring it out.
