    Back to the vise

    I'm back home after and extended trip overseas and I'm dusting off the gear. My fly box is damn near empty so I need to sit down and tie.

    I need some simple patterns to tie. Besides the obvious pheasant tails and hare's ears, what are you guys currently using? Give me some ideas! I'm sure this topic has been beaten to death but lets face it, the site is pretty quiet and you don't have anything better to do if you're reading this anyway.

    I have some time on my hands the next 3 weeks as well so if anyone wants to get out and fish, let me know!

    Soft hackles. They work great and there is no wrong way to fish them.

    What flyman said and iris caddis, there is no wrong way to fish that one either....sulfur/sulphur ? hatch is looming also unless it already started, the PT soft hackle is a killer during that hatch.

    Barr Tungstones. Use Spiky squirrel dubbing, dark olive body, olive brown thorax has produced well. This has become one of my goto nymph patterns tied in beadhead and unweighted.

    Give the tabou caddis a try as well using emerger hooks. They work great as a dropper or as the unweighted fly on a multiple nymph rig.

    Right now for NJ stocked rainbows you will need only one "fly", Jeff Blood's Blood Dot in pink with an orange yolk. With this pattern you will get sick of catching the stockers and will be off to better fishing for PA wild browns where you can use real flies.
