I've had great luck using solid red patterns for summer fish.
Also consider tying up some marabou or bunny nightmares.

if in reference to my post, that fish was def on the swing. i'm not a dirty nympher
Please! That's "dirty ass nympher." Accuracy matters in things of such great importance. How do I know it's important, you ask? Because of the number of threads on this topic on WFF, that's how.

For the sake of starting a debate turning into argument. Let's say I did nymph. Aside from beads which I have a good selection of (center pin reference) what should I buy.

CLO....I'm hardly new to fly fishing. If you can pull up stuff from piscatorial pursuits then you can also pull up stuff from this very website. Which I've been a member of since 2007.....I stopped fly fishing in 2010. Getting back into it now.

nice try buddy

Then you must be familiar with the search function of this website in the upper right corner.

Pat Stones in sizes 6-10, orange cone head nymph patterns in 6-10, nymphs in 6-12 tied with blue, I also use hares ears, prince nymphs, Amato Nymphs, and yes, I will throw glow but patterns as well, but to be honest with you I've certainly found where beads/egg patterns do not work as well as nymphs, more often than not to be honest.

I will also nymph big swing patterns that fish will take dead drifted or swung at the end of an indicator drift. One of my personal keys is to continue to switch up patterns if I know fish are present. I think most of my success comes from making sure I fish where there are actually fish to be caught.
