    Default Allowing for seasons ...

    ... fall through spring, a Griffith Gnat, which can be fished dry or wet.

    ... summer through fall, an FEB Hopper, which can do double duty as a Golden Stone or October Caddis.

    Madam-X in size 14 Black, or maybe Green, or maybe Green wing with Deer hair body.....I can't decide on the color, but size and pattern is easy!

    Peacock Elk Hair Caddis. Just because I'm thinking about tying some up.

    Default Tounge in cheek

    I'm glad we've all come to a consensus on which fly to use. Best thing I've found for a surefire fishgetter is two chicken feathers wrapped onto a quarter stick of Dupont. (Looks kinda like a big tubefly) Use your 14 wt. and open up the loop.
    They're just fish, right? Right?

    Lew,

    I must admit that I've been tempted to use Dupont Lures (or lies) at times but managed to refrain myself. I did manage to take a canoe full of fish using 6 fragmentation grenades tossed into a large lake. Do those count as Dupont flies?

    Since nobody has mentioned leeches...i'll say black marabou leeches, size 10 to 4 on longshank nymph hooks, no added weight.

    Panman makes a great case for the Montana nymph though and i go to that a lot when the leech doesn't do the trick.

    Both flies are very easy to tye as a bonus.

    Cheers,

    MontanaMoose
