    Okay great! I am going to do a modified Patricia. I have had pretty good luck with this one. I have Caught Steelies with it on both the Kalama and the washougal. Instead of using Claret I use kaufmans brown mixture, it's pretty good. :D

    Heh there David is this hairwing swap catered towards the winter runs or is it just a hairwing swap for any run???

    Just curious, cause my lum plum I use primarily for summer runs...If you're looking for winter run flies I have a few other patterns I can choose from for that.

    Thought I should ask before I start...

    It doesnt matter. I am going with an Atlantic salmon fly which can also be used for summer runs on the G.R. and we have done well with it on the Snake.

    sounds good scott.
    any other favorites for the Klickitat? I'm going to tie up a box for a friend who loves to fish there and was wondering what I should include.

    I just finished 8 Black Ghosts while watching the Saints-Rams game. Might have to tie up another pattern over the next few weeks.
