    I am interested in your favorite fall lake pattern and if available, a link to tying instructions.

    A favorite of mine is Platte River Spider. I've mentioned this pattern too many times, but with Fall here, I am tying a few more now.
    I enjoy tying these because they catch fish! My best fishing with this pattern has been in Fall, in lakes. Casting and stripping, working shore and shoals.

    I got the pattern here from Charlie Craven's Fly Box

    This is not near as pretty as Charlie's, but it will fish.
