what's your go to fly

Recommended Posts

If i had to pick one fly to fish year round...Thankfully I dont...I would use an olive caddis larva...size 16..

 

There are just too many flies and situations to just pick one.. :up:

Too many to count, but my short list would include:

 

wooly buggers

pheasant tail nymphs

hare's ear nymphs

egg patterns

caddis pupa

caddis emergers (La Fontaine sparkle emergers are my favorite)

black and yellow stoneflies

scuds

rainbow warriors

RS2s

BWO dries

Prince nymphs

 

There are many others, but those flies are in use every month of the year. Various sizes, some with beads, some with flash, etc.

Personally I've probably caught more fish on bead headed flashback (sunny) or non-flashback (cloudy) hare's ear and prince nymphs than any other nymph.

So many to choose from, but those are my top two default/generics that always seem to catch. :up:

If the water is a little stained I like the black wooly bugger or zonker in black.other then that is a zebra midge and a rs2 in tandem

The op asked for favorite flies that work year round. In my previous two posts I put year round flies

 

My favorite flies are any may fly imitator that is hatching in the spring. Nothing like catching trout on the surface.
