Yes Fox's pattern was easy to see but after one fish the fly was toast because i didnt have the frog powder to dry it off.

Cmon fox, show me the way ????

I once fished an 18 BWO during the trico fall and slayed them.

JackM, Really? Thats cool. I had alot of problems last year. Im pretty sure its because of my newb status. I guess if you get an excellent drift, then the bug doesnt have to be spot on eh?

Yes, really. Spring Creek, 2009. No trico imitations left, fish rising. The closest I had was the #18 BWO. When I say I slayed them, I mean I hooked up once or twice-- all is relative.

Not doubting you at all jack, just annoyed with my onstream assessment of having the best hatch match. I seemed to think having the most exact fly was crucial, but seems as long as it resembles a small bug and is presented well, trout will take.

Presentation rules over representation ????

Was on spring last night and the fish were rising to midges. They were cream in color, very small. So down to seven x/size 26 I go, they were rising everywhere couldn't ring the dinner bell on them. Tied on a 20 bwo got two and missed three right away. That ceased quickly enough, changed to a size 18 bwo bang, bang two more caught and missed a dandy. That stopped quickly as well. By now it's getting dark fast started seeing some cream sulphurs 16 tied one on and had a blast until well past dark. Go figure, saw all of the above bugs on the water but only a handful of each, except the midges they were everywhere. So, was it presentation that did the trick? Or with several different bugs on the water and the individual trout wanting this or that and passing on other perfectly good bugs, trying different patterns on them and finding the trout that wanted that one, changing and finding the trout that wanted that one? In this scenario I think that makes sense?

Funny you say that because the biggest fish I slayed was on an extreme downstream presentation. I kep hearing this slurping downstream in the slack water about 40 feet or a little more.

I didn't want to move downstream to try for it, so I cast as far as I could and just started paying out line with s-curves. The trout took, and I locked up and landed it. Then I went home.

Jack,
so in your case would you say they took the bigger flies because they are more of a meal? Then once it got dark, they just saw the impression of a bug in the water and went after?

I have problems with my drift so most of the time I blame No takes on myself rather than not having a good imitation.

I would just say that trout are dumber than we think and will do unexpected things. An 18 BWO probably just looked like food at the time.

Jim, When I saw the bwo I felt relief for a larger bug and tried it. Of all the fish rising I found the five that wanted one, and I think the same for the 18's. There weren't a lot of them but enough to get a short burst of interest from some of them. A few were on the water and I had the flies to take advantage of an other wise fruitless ( for me) situation. I think it's like one person walks up to a table of fruit and takes an apple, another takes a banana, and another an orange. If you know what I mean.

I'm with jack. Trout are dumber then we think. I think they will work as is.

Again, i really like that vise. I would really like to see a picture of the entire vise.

Yes, I always have them with me and find they can catch fish when they really shouldn't.
