During March and April I fish these flies on a Murray’s Classic 9 foot 5X Leader. During May and June I use Murray’s Classic 9 foot 6X Leader. These flies listed above match our early season aquatic hatches so I use them to fish one-on-one to the rising trout. If the hatches are spare I use the same flies to cover the water by carefully fishing the feeding stations.
After work the weather seemed too good to pass up the opportunity to hit a local trout stream. This stream has brookies and wild rainbows. I saw some surface action and took a nice rainbow or two on a Mr. Rapidan Parachute and Tan Delta Wing Caddis. The stream levels are great right now and unless we receive a lot of rain tonight, the conditions are perfect.
