I've taken more than enough of your flies.


That's why I tie. It's just as enjoyable for me to see someone catch fish on my ties. Then for me to catch it myself. You will be takin flies from me for the rest of our lives. Between you an chron, I seem to be the only one that has enough flies for a particular outting. An tippet an strike indicators the list goes on an on.

I fish smallies all summer. You want to cover the whole water column. I carry 3 basic patterns. Poppers, baitfish, and crayfish patterns. You should have various sizes and you should have them with various amounts of weight. A small crayfish dead drifted can be deadly. The patterns don't have to be very sophisticated, its all about the way you fish them. Basic deer hair poppers, Clouser minnow and crayfish are all you really need, throw in some woolybuggers and you're set. For colors, you'll want chartruese and white, olive and white, all white, white and red, black, brown, and olive. A lot of times I'll go out with just 6 flies. I'll take a white popper, a black popper, white and chartruse clouser minnow, white and olive clouser minnow, brown crayfish, and white woolybugger with a red collar. Hope that helps, good luck!

Like many have already said "you can't go wrong with a Woolybugger"

Fun with a 5wt and some black lead eye buggers.

So many fine memories with gigantic (size 2 3X) olive Woolybuggers and the clean water upstream from Harrisburg:

If you're gonna be fishing the Wango go white! It's by far the big money color on that stream from Russel to Warren. Streamer perform best there, but poppers do get attention usually swung or dead drifted as opposed to "worked". Keep it simple. Boychick is right; Popers, baitfish (streamers), crayfish. Color and profile are key, and just have fun!
