Dear Jack,

And yet I seem to recall that you don't like indicator fishing?

Is there any indicator more blatantly obvious than a dry fly?

Regards,

Tim Murphy

Not only are dry flies indicators of the strike like a bobber but those fishing them choose the easy way out by electing to fish for fish that give themselves away in a game of hide and seek. It is a cowardly way to fish I tell ya.

My april flies

Wooly bugger
Phesant tail

1. Frenchie / Quill nymph I made up - It's a tie
2. Al's Rat - It catches fish from PA to Wyoming, and it can be fished in every way imaginable...
3. Any kind of Scud, from weighted to unweighted

Dry Fly - Griffith's Gnat

Streamer - Yuk Bug

I'd be willing to fish just about any stream with nothing but an Olive Woolly Bugger and a Hare's Ear. I don't even care what the 3rd fly is I guess probably a scud, but I can see good arguments for a Royal Wulff or Coachman as well. I love the Rat idea as well. A stimulator, yea, you never go wrong with those. Well anyway, I would likely never need the 3rd...

Dear shakey,

I love you man!

You are as honest as the day is long, and that is a rare thing anymore.

Adams
Bugger
Hare's ear.

Pretty much still all I fish with the option of changing color and size (thus making them something with a different name). You could go your whole life do well with those patterns and variations.
