    That's why few of the little ones survive to be 'big ones'...they're doofus fish.

    I run some soft hackles on slow meandering mountain streams. I carry a GRHE and Pheasant Tail Flymphs, and Partridge and Orange and Partridge and Yellow wet flies. They all do real well.

    If I could add a sixth, it would be an ant pattern as I had great success with it last Summer.

    It seems everyone likes the general patterns. Everyone knows small stream trout are like garbage disposals, and any of those trout would eat a grape if it had a dead drift.

    Why make the solution harder than it is?

    Sounds intriguing. Mind posting a picture of your version of this pattern? There are several variations online.

    On the few of our little streams that have fish over 12", I like a hi-vis black foam cricket in size 10. Got some massive cutties on a Clark Fork trib in September when nothing was hatching.

    My favorite way to fish in the wilderness is dynamite... no witnesses.
