    Spey fished the Sky below Reiter Friday. Got no love, but saw some fish caught across the river by jig fishermen. Water clarity and level was primo. We were both fishing large patterns, intruder and leech.
    Switched from bright to dark patterns with no success. Next time I plan to go smaller.

    Any advise?

    I like small patterns in purple or black with no flash. Old school, I guess.

    right now its almost all hatchery fish. Notorious for not loving the swing. Id go small, pink under an indicator.
