    Do any of you actually fish?

    Re: What are your favorite early season flies

    I'm a relatively young fart, but I agree with Jeff. Matching the hatch and going small and subtle is tedious. Why start early when this is the only way you're going to be able to catch fish in July? Early season fish (wild or stocked) are in my experience less suspicious of big, colorful flies fished with aggressive presentations. At the same time, they're not feeling greedy yet, and if the water is cold they're still lethargic and lazy, and would probably rather continue hanging out in front of that rock than venture out and fight the current for a meal. I usually go big and colorful and ugly and figure I'd rather turn fish off then not get noticed in the first place. Seems to work for me.

    So, yeah, humpies and stimulators and coachmen with golden stone or prince nymph droppers. Lots of random stuff in my fly box that I probably won't use later on in the season when fish are keying in on specific hatches.
