Agree that the weenie and muddler are pretty much a waste of time in the waters I fish.

I think beginners associate flies with lures, and therefore look for the "magic fly". There is no magic fly that produces all the time because flies are fished to feeding fish, where lures antagonize the fish causing a strike.

I've caught fish on muddlers, green weenies, wooly buggers, etc. I really can't think of a fly in my box that I ain't caught fish on.

+1 on the muddler minnow. I really don't like fishing streamers with spun deer hair for heads. Just seems goofy to me - it's a subsurface fly that floats! Though honestly I generally don't do well with streamers to begin with, so it might just be me.

Jeremy, one thing to keep in mind about that kind of streamer is. When using a sink tip or full sinking line w/ a short tippet is the line gets the streamer to the bottom and pauses in retrieve will allow a streamer with a neutral buoyancy to float up off the bottom then a short strip darts it away then repeat, that can be deadly.

There is a need to fish, to be in the water. It soothes the soul...

I second the green weenie. I also don't have very much luck on a rainbow warrior. I seem to be able to catch one or two out of run but never 4-8 like I might with some other patterns.

White maribou muddler with a gold cone head. It's killer for stockies and SM bass.

I can make you feel. But I can't make you think.

I have to say that the muddler is one of my favorite flies. I catch a lot of trout on them when there is no action on top of the water. Great fly to have when they aren't jumping. I weight mine and fish it on my regular dry fly set-up. Might not work in real deep water but it works for me about anywhere. Another fly that is a must is the Adams. Probably more fish caught on an Adams than any other fly.
