Thanks, silverbrown and sparse grey hackle. Sounds like a variety of flies work at various times during the day, as is usual for stillwaters. I've found that newer triploids are more susceptible to flies with a good "buggy" look to them, and not necessarily matching the hatch. The brookies may be another matter, however. On a lake, a crowd can be dealt with much more easily than a river. I wear a wide-brimmed brown hat when fishing, so if you're up there, paddle over and say hello, and we can swap some patterns.
