The Fine Art of Fly Selection

Then I irritate myself over the matter of which fly to use, finally darting my hand blindly into the fly box. I come up with one I tied myself that imitates the effect of a riot gun on a love seat.

  2. Well, I gotta tell you, I am the worst fisherman ever on the Big T. If I were you I would check out Gilligan's Blog. I wish I could offer advice, but all I could tell you is that you will most likely need to nymph, and your bugs will probably need to be small. Sz 20 midges under an indicator on 5x or even 6x might be neccesary. Also, as of right now, it looks like it will probably be pretty tough to just get down to the water!
