Sample text

Solution: Bring multiple rods on the river with you to match different conditions. With high flows on the Little Juniata River in central Pennsylvania, Jay Nichols and I prepared for the day, double-fisted with nymphs and streamers. Using both streamers and nymphs at the same time, our reward was two quality browns right off the bat. JACK HANRAHAN Constantly changing flies or knots is a pain. It sometimes results in missing the hatch and, subsequently, the topwater bite. Having to change your rig from dry flies to nymphs, or nymphs to streamers, can slow down your pace enough to affect the day’s success.

The best example of this is egg-laying caddis. When the adult caddis dive to the river bottom to lay their eggs they not only leave a bubble trail below the water’s surface, but the diving movement becomes the visual cue many trout are looking for. Flies that pulsate while they drift will mimic the natural insect behavior while the line is drifting drag-free. These flies should be used with swinging or tension drifts that pass through a trout’s viewing lane at a 45-degree angle and then disappear to the side.

There are so many flies on the market today that many imitations have been forgotten, especially decades-old patterns like this Woolly Worm. Fish can become conditioned to seeing all the new bugs, ensuring a good reaction—like the one from this Lahontan cutthroat—to time-tested patterns. SEEING RED Problem: With so many fly color options, it is hard to decide which to use in what season. Solution: Red is a common attractor for all four seasons. Trout can be selective when they feed, but large trout will become opportunistic when they are hunting for their next meal because they have to eat constantly to maintain size.
