When you do this long enough, you try to catch 'em like You want to catch 'em. As far as Grannoms or any other caddis, I'll fish a rising nymph on a 12 1xL unless they're jumping out of the water for the egg layers, at which point I'll switch to the appropriate light or dark hairwing pattern. Phew that was a long post for me.
I'm more long winded in person. And not so dry.

Jay, great link to Loren William's page. I think his tying instructions on his website to be the best. He shows every little step, including tips that I sometimes never heard of before.

I did well on a Soft Hackle with a Peacock body with and without the eggs.

i never caught fish on grannom immitations before but do you guys think if i took a size 14 hook and dubbed it with black dubbing (dry ) and tied in a small pinch of moose mane behind the hook eye with the butts pointing out over the hook bend and fold the moose mane like a loop wing emerger so it sticks out past the hook bend and then tie it off where you tied in the first tip ends of moose mane , let me know if this works ? seems like it would float like a cork and really give a good body sillouhette and also might represent a down wing real well too , whats you guys thoughts on this ?
