Falling Springs

Tip of the week 

The dog days are here. Day in and out expect morning tricos followed by terrestrial activity. Nymph and streamer fishing is always productive.

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.
