Example text

A red midge triggered this rainbow cruising near the shoreline at spring ice-off. With so many fly options, it can be overwhelming and intimidating to find the right one. The number of new synthetics, dyed tying materials, flash, and color changes is constantly growing, making it difficult for anglers to develop confidence in any particular size and color. I believe, however, that red is almost always a hot color—there is something magical about the color that makes it attractive to large trout.

I call this being “on deck,” akin to a batter getting ready to step up to the plate. I also use this small container as storage for the hot flies. I am a firm believer in speed on the river; yes, you can take the time to organize each fly in its proper place during or after each retie, but you run the risk of missing the few shots you will get at the fish in the process. You can organize your fly box after your trip or before the next day’s fishing. Without question, the best way to achieve success on the water is through preparation.

When selecting flies I try to determine the natural cycle the insects follow throughout a day. These cycles vary with the seasons. The heavy Trico hatch of summer from Pennsylvania to California is an example of this. Many anglers think this small mayfly is only black with spent wings. That version is the most visible insect on the surface as the day approaches high noon, but the hatch starts with the olive-bodied female earlier in the morning. Knowing this is a huge help when presenting a two-fly rig at the beginning stages of the hatch.
