    Gotta be a bugger.

    The toughest choice is trying to decide olive, brown, or black, not necessarily in that order. :thumb

    I'd have to say it depends on where I'm fishing, but most of the time lately it seems to be a Spring Creek Special in either black or olive.

    My go to fly is a Elk Hair Caddis,a Stimulator,a humpy,Adams. Or what ever they happen to be biting on at the time. Dry fly fishing the only way to go.:thumb :thumb :thumb :thumb :thumb :thumb Or is there any other way:dunno

    Not sure
    I fished Rattlesnake tonight and went to my go to fly: a no-bead gold ribbed hare's ear. By the time I got off at about 8:45pm, the GHRE had bagged 7 of my 8 fish, including two 16"+ triploids.IMHO, the key to the GHRE is to NOT tie it with a bead head. I think fish that get a lot of pressure have become wary of bead heads and other flashy stuff.

    well I agree with steelhead69, a bunny leech works great, but I tie it differently depending on the season. When the trout are slow and just tail nipping the fly, I tie with just a stinger hook. As the season warms up the hook returns to its normal location. I also Tie this fly longer that I probably should, but a long leech creates a ton of movement

    Well guys, my all-time favorite go-to fly originated from DuPont. This little ol' fly is called a quarter stick!
