Falling Springs


It is now to be thinking about those days on the water. All are streams are in prime shape. They have great flows and more and more insects continue to hatch. Be prepared to fish in various styles. Nymphs is a mustr and dry fly fioshing can present itself anytime during the day.

4X is what I normally nymph with, but lighter tippets are sometimes needed. Most dry flies can be tied off 6X but the tipping point to 7X is around size 20. Dress appropriate-no bright clothes and you are set. These few tips and many more patterns, hatches and techniques can be found in my book, "Spring Creek Strategies" bought at any Orvis store or off my web site.
