early season trout flies

#7
These are nice flies and fun to look at. But I personally only fish one fly in early spring and that is a chironomid. Generally black and white. I try to not to overdress the fly, but rather I try to keep them very thin and even in large sizes like a number ten, I dress sparingly. I prefer size 16 but it is often 18 that gets the best action. :thumb:

Bob, the Good luck with those bugs; I'd like to try them maybe. :cool:

Dan, i tie left handed too, i couldn't imagine tying righty... Anyways, i need to get in on the skqualla action this year. That double bead nymph would work on steelie around here. I have been tying for 7 years btw, started with moms sewing thread and feathers from a friends chicken.

Peace,
Andy

That is one of my main streamer patterns. I fhish it in montana on a full sinking type 6 and it is unbeleivable. It takes a while to tie though is the only thing.
