Re: 5/11 and 5/12 Fishing Report

When running a dry dropper rig how far do you guys typically run the nymph below the dry? Does it vary on the hole you’re fishing or do you like a certain length? Personally, it varies depending on the water and purpose. Sometimes the dry I fish is just a bobber that I hope catches a fish (hopper, ...

Streamer patterns

Looking for some inspiration... I haven't tied too many new streamers lately. Wondering if you've been tying any "new" patterns. I'm a little tired of my same ol'.
